Antique Silkwork Picture Framed Black Glass Border Winter Riverscape Early 19thC
A very attractive and decorative antique gilt plaster framed silkwork picture with hand painted sky and coloured stitching. The scene is of a wooded or forested riverscape with snow covered ground. It is set in an oval shaped black glazed mount with a gilt border, a style popular in the late eighteenth and early 19th century.
The silkwork we believe to be Georgian or Regency made circa 1820. The frame measures 6 inches high by 5 inches wide, the visible silkwork is 3 inches high by 2 1/4 inches wide. It weighs 145 grammes unpacked.
It is in very good antique condition. All original, the paper back has been replaced at some time in the past. Some minor losses to the frame and wear to the gilding.
This is a great item of Georgian silkwork and ideal for collectors of antique embroidery a very decorative item.
