Scarce and Superb
Needlework and Brass
England, 18th century. Sophisticated needlework behind glass within a walnut-framed molded panel, the panel with drop finial fitted with a brass spurred candle arm. The arm cast in four parts then screw-fitted together. Undoubtedly made for a very upscale home or meeting place. One can imagine the candle light dancing across the needlework panel to give delight to an otherwise darkened room. Fine condition with minor imperfections to the textile. The panel including drop about 22 inches overall;10 wide. Beautiful and functional, ready to hang in your home. From a fine New England collection.
