Circa 1840 Silk Embroidery

Antique Floral Embroidery front view glass
This beautiful floral spray was embroidered with silk thread on ecru silk fabric at the very start of the Victorian era, about 1840. The original backing, seen in photograph #3, is a piece of early printed wallpaper, faded and in such crumbling condition that we had our framer put a new archival back board over it. Otherwise, it would have simply disintegrated and fallen off completely.
