SAILORS ANTIQUE WOOLWORK of a ship, tinsel backing


 
SAILORS ANTIQUE WOOLWORK of a ship, tinsel backing
   
Sku:30047

 



A wonderful lengthy ship flies an American flag in this spare unusual sailor's needlework. The background around the image is not embroidered, Behind the punchwork is a tinsel backing that glistens through the punchwork holels in the foundation. Tinsel backing is another Victorian handicraft that adds even more interest to this well done ship picture. (photo flashback, sorry).
