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.


Early 20th c

A cuff from a woman's chemise. Already to hang and would make a good present.


Embroidered with a geometric design of four radiating dtylised flower buds from a central stylised flowerhead, with coiling leaves and further flowers, all above two rows of stylised slanting foliage, all in crimson, pink, pale green, orange and black wools, on a cotton fround.

12 x 10 1/2 in; 30 x 27 cm including frame.


Very good. This piece has been hand stitched to calico, stretched over acid free board and put into an old frame with an acid free mount.
