Description

A superb quality example of needlework, 1920s, in the Jacobean style. Depicting the Tree of Life with the colours still unfaded, this is a beautiful item created by a talented needlewoman almost 100 years ago.
Now presented as a linen cushion with feather filling.
There are two damages to the linen backing...one appears to be moth damage, the other wear. There are a few loose threads, but essentially the condition is very good.
In order to ensure the needlework's long term survival it might be better to frame it; it is, after all, as much a work of art as is a painting.
SIZE: 17 x 17 inches.
PROVENANCE: By descent in a Yorkshire family from new.
Internal Ref: crewel2
