Item Ref



A rare pair of English embroidery panels of King Charles I and Queen Henrietta Maria c.1640.
They have been attached to a later silk backing; the frames are Regency c. 1820 and, as shown in image 10, the backing paper of one of them is from a newspaper dated 1819, so there is no doubt that they were framed at that time.
There are some slight damages and discolorations to the items, but essentially they are in good condition.
SIZE: 12 x 9.5 inches including the frame.
PROVENANCE: With Joanna Booth, Kings Road, London in the 1970s.
Then in the Collection of Mike Handford, Burford, Oxfordshire.
Internal Ref: 9298


Height = 30.5 cm (12")
