Antique Needlepoint "Home Sweet Home" Gilt Gold Framed Smaller Size French Country Decor
This is a wonderful piece of antique embroidery. c1900-10 gilt framed needlepoint reading "Home Sweet Home" in a great smaller size. This is the perfect size for a grouping, shelf or table measuring 9.5" X 4.5". The gilt frame has a nice metallic gold finish with light patina. The backing is still on this framed piece and with the exception of one small tear to the backing, we did not open to clean the inside glass. We did an outside wipe down and it is a beautiful piece of antique textile art.
This antique framed needlepoint is in Good+ condition. The glass is perfect and the beaded frame is fairly close with only very minor age wear detected. The embroidery is done on a linen or cotton fabric and shows discoloration from age. This is as we would expect from a piece of this age. The embroidery is well-done and the variagated pink and green thread is bright and clean.
A charming piece for your French Country, Country, Shabby Chic, Farmhouse or Victorian Decor.
