Rare, unusual and interesting antique costumes and textiles; for museums and collectors looking for that extra special piece, for new and established collectors and for those with a modest budget who want to adorn their person or home.

Late 19th c

This embroidery resembles a tree with branches emerging from the trunk.  The frame is contemporary with the embroidery.   May Morris or John Henry Dearle designed this piece.


The central acanthus type leaf vase with bell shaped flowers and leafy stems, the border with repeat curving design, all in soft peach through, terracotta to rust, pale blue, green on an ivory twisted floss silk ground, 14 1/2 in/ 37 cm sq, c 1900 dull gilded frame, glazed.


Very good.  The embroidered panel appears to have been hand stitched to a linen ground, stretched over a wooden stretcher.  Ideally this should be replaced and re done. Stitched to calico (acid free) and stretched over acid free board.  It's up to you. We can get this done for you for a modest amount.
