SAILOR'S SILKWORK IN MEMORY OF MY CRUISE ANTIQUE FOLK ART


 
SAILOR'S SILKWORK IN MEMORY OF MY CRUISE ANTIQUE FOLK ART
   

 



 One of several sailor's silkwork export pictures I have been fortunate to own in excellent condition. This one has a photo of the sailor and his ship, and flags of many nations to which he likely sailed. Inscribed in embroidery In Memory of Mt Cruise to........listing the several countries in his travels. These were made for sale to sailors who travelled to the East at the turn of the 20th century. Many different images were sewn, so the possibility of collecting a nice variety of configurations is  good..Sorry about the flourescent light reflection  at the top of the picture
