Georgian Miniature Hair & Needlework Embroidery

A gorgeous little George III era needlework embroidery dating to the 1775 to 1800 period and most likely brought back during the Grand Tour.

This original 18th century silkwork was wrought in silk thread with human hair embroidery to the outline of the maiden's arm and also used to embroider the Italian script 'Na??? Ventura Fece' - 'Not what he had expected'. It is very rare to find a Georgian silkwork in this very small scale and of such refinement. Its coloring and condition is superb, it has been cherished over the centuries and kept away from its old enemy harsh sunlight.

Housed within its Italian dark wood hollow cove frame with unusual gilt foil covering to the inner moulding to imitate parcel gilding. Complete with original old bubbled glass.

Size: Frame 14.5 cm (5.75") by 18 cm (7") by 2.5 cm (1")

Condition: Silkwork is in excellent condition for its vast age . The frame has some surface wear to the very edges and re-secured back board.

FREE shipping to mainland UK, EU and USA. Clients from other countries please request a shipping quote prior to purchase.
