Overall in very good condition

A beautiful and very interesting hand embroidered eclectic style tapestry. It depicts of a noble lady wearing medieval cloths among stylized plants, very typical for the Art Nouveau style. The lady is embroidered with very fine stitches possibly using a silk thread and the landscape around her with warm pastel tones of ocher and green. The embroidery is beautifully framed in a black wooden frame and it is behind the glass in a passe-partout made of gilded wood with a second black wooden passe-partout underneath. (see the last two photos, No. 10 and No. 11 for an impression of the framing). This elegant black/ gold combination and the theatrical effect are very typical for the Hollywood Regency style that was popular in the 1950's, 1960's and now has a revival.

38,5 X 38,5 cm (opening passe-partout)
51 X 52 cm (framed)

Overall excellent condition, the colours slightly faded, the frame has a some wear. Overall a beautiful and very decorative work.
