Antique Silkwork Embroidery Swans Castle Winifred Fuller Barnes Gilt Frame 1910
A very attractive antique framed long stitch silk and wool embroidery by Winifred Fuller Brown and titled Legend.
The embroidery is an original design and features decorative floral motifs around a cartouche. This shows three swans in a ladscape / riverscape overlooked by a castle on a hill. The name Fuller is embroidered in one corner and the details of the embroidery are written on a label on the back.
The embroidery is behind glass in an ornate gilt frame and this measures 12 inches by 9 1/2 inches. It weighs 686 g and is in good order, ready to hang, with just a little damage to the frame, particularly the top left hand corner.
This is a lovely example of folk art / arts and crafts and probably a unique piece. It is a great item for any collector and a decorative and well crafted piece.
