These pieces are really attrctive. The towel was probably for hand wiping, the centre got stained, as they do, and was cut. They could be joined and used on a chest of drawers, or framed. We can mount them for you ready for a frame. I want to sell the two together.
Each end with three large apricot and cream flowers with beaten silver stamens, between large green leaves with similar spines, the leaves edges in fine silver metal thread, surrounded by smaller fruits and flowers, on a fine muslin, edged with silver lace.
6 x 22 in; 15 x 56 cm actual embroidery with lace.
Very good apart from one light brown mark on one piece. See it on the left of the left hand flower. I think if the pieces were mounted on a suitably dense weave fabric, this would not show.
