A British Plushwork and Silk Piture of a Parrot on Silk, c.1845.


AN ENGLISH STUMPWORK AND SILK PICTURE OF A PARROT,

Circa 1845.


The picture depicts a stumpwork parrot on a moire ground which is decorated with entwined stems of tea roses, fuchsia, convolvulus and blossoms in silk, all within an original maple frame.  The colours are bright and attractive.  There are some tears in the moire, unfortunately, as this type of design was somewhat impractical with the weight of the stumpwork typically pulling on the background.  All within maple frame.


Dimensions: 21 1/2 inches high x 21 7/16 inches wide.
