Multicoloured hand embroidered wall hanging
This fanciful piece of embroidery portrays wonderful scenes of woman carrying baskets of chickens on their back and in their hands, men with large hats sitting astride colourful horses and a group of huntsmen returning home with deer hanging upside down on poles. Exotic insects and other animals sit within a grid formation on a stem of large flowers. Truly a feast for the eyes. An elderly hand has stitched this piece, and the embroidery is fairly dense in its application, however it is a charming piece, full of intrigue.
The cloth has been backed and ‘locked’ together in our workshop in Wiltshire using a blue and cream cotton ticking. The cloth has a heavy weight Velcro stitched to the top of the hanging, and a light weight wooden batten threaded through a loop at the bottom of the backing cloth which stretches and weights the hanging. . To attach the artwork to the wall, a batten with corresponding velcro loop (provided) needs to be screwed into a wall.
