Description

This large interesting 19th century embroidery shows a large exotic bird sitting on a branch amongst flowers. Fine Berlin woolwork is enhanced by a form of stumpwork for the bird and flowers, creating raised 3-dimensional images with a soft cut pile. The colours are still strong, and the embroidery has been set into a maple frame. Circa 1880
