Item Description

A beautiful and highly decorative framed embroidery/silkwork of Queen Wilhelmina of The Netherlands after the iconic work from 1901 by Paul Berthon (French, 1872–1934). The foreground with Queen Wilhelmina dressed in traditional Friesian Dutch costume with poppies or tulips at her shoulder. The background landscape with windmills, church spires and birds in flight. We particularly like skill of hand to the embroidery on the bonnet and the lovely colour to the flowers. The hint of orange to the sunset sky behind the left windmill is also rather charming. Signs of discolouration and marks commensurate to age and use. Please note there is some reflection on the glass in the photographs. We can have this re-glazed with museum glass if you so wish free of charge.

Wilhelmina Helena Pauline Maria (1880–1962) was Queen of the Netherlands from 1890 to 1948. After the German invasion during WWII, she relocated the government to England in 1942 and became the symbol of Dutch resistance to German occupation through her radio broadcasts from London.
