6” x 2.5”

Fine silk cross-stitch and chain stitch hand-embroidery on handwoven natural cotton

Russian printed-cotton backing

Very good condition; no color runs; no embroidery damage

 

This small embroidery is complete in itself, although it was no doubt part of a larger item.

The pattern is often associated with Lakai embroidery.

A nice, early little piece that shows examples of various sewing techniques
