A sweet picture in a very nice old frame. This would make a very nice present! The ground colour is not so white as in the photos, more a natural linen shade. It is a piece of old linen.
A dragonfly and butterfly embroidered in mid and light blue, pinky coffee and taupe tent stitch outlined in black couched stitching, now on a natural old linen ground with 1930s frame, dull gilded.
The frame 7 x 5 1/ in; 17 x 13 cm
