Item specifics

Product: Unframed embroidery Style/ Origin: English
Type/ Features: Embroidery Colour: Multi-Coloured
Material: Linen Pattern/ Style: Floral

A really pretty and beautifully hand stitched vintage embroidery, which I believe dates from about the 1930s or 40s.

This is worked on linen and depicts an english thatched cottage in a cottage garden, with a lovely poem by Patience Strong, which reads

What more could the heart desire, In sunshine or in rain

Than a quaint old cottage, in a little English lane.

The linen measures 13 x 8.25 inches and the worked section measures 10.5 x 6.5 inches.

The embroidery comes in great condition.  The linen has at some time been mounted and there is a feint brown line where the material was folded.

From a smoke free home.
