Embroidered Floral Panel Mid C19th Wools & Silk














Embroidered Floral Panel Mid C19th Wools & Silk
 
 
DescriptionFramed and glazed panel of Swedish embroidery, size 52" x 23" including frame which is 1" wide. This beautifully subtle embroidery is worked in soft wools and silks, each, flower, leaf, bud, petal or stem is shaded and verrigated with enormous delicacy. Some of the flowers and buds are raised work (padded) and the fine tendrils are worked in chain stitch and back stitch. The majority of the work is long stitch.The pattern of the panel is reminiscent of The Tree of Life, Swedish embroiderers were inspired in the mid 19th by William Morris and started to produce work based on traditional patterns. This panel has been embroidered by a lady named on the back as Johanna Karolina Nennes F Sellman born 1828 and died 1909, this means that it could be any thing from 160 to 120 years old. At this moment the positioning of the hanging strings mean that it hangs vertically but personally I would prefer to see it hung horizontally. It would be very attractive placed above a bed head, for instance. Left in original frame to preserve authenticity of labeling and so purchaser can choose if change is required.
