Silk embroidery with laid-work silk floss background. This textile is difficult to photograph properly, as the silk floss is so reflective that only the human eye can appreciate it's subtlety. Linen base has selvedges on both sides; finished and folded at bottom; top cut and folded (see detail images). Exceptional condition considering the age and delicacy of laid-work silk floss; there is some wear near several corners. 71"x 34".
