Beautiful Georgian Silkwork Embroidered and Painted, Framed Picture of Women With Baskets. This is a stunning antique embroidery, the age is unknown but it is believed to be Georgian due to the style of embroidery and the content of the picture.The embroidery depicts two young women in period costume holding baskets. There are rolling hill in the background and tree foliage to the side. The faces and hair of the women has been delicately painted in.
The silk fabric has some discolouring and has become mottled. The embroidery is framed behind glass in a period oval frame with original gilt detail. The frame is in general good condition but does have some damage to the edges/varnish.The structure of the frame is intact so it will most likely restore beautifully. On the back of the frame is a paper cover which has ripped in the middle. There is some writing on the back which we believe says Bought Cromer 1903. The frame measures: 30cm by 26cm.
