Rare 18th Century Georgian framed black silk work embroidered oval rural picture This is a rarely found George III black silkwork embroidered picture from the last half of the 18th century, circa 1780-1800. making it over 220 years old . Housed in a period oval frame with an original gilt border and behind glass, we see two women in the foreground having a conversation, whilst a young boy plays with a dog, it is surrounded by a rural scene with buildings in the background. This sentimental rural scene very reminiscent of the genre of paintings and prints created by the popular artists of this time; such as George Romney, Francis Wheatley and George Morland. Each of the women are embroidered in black silk work wearing the dress of the time the rural scene is also so very beautifully stitched in black silk, with wonderful trees, bushes, foliage and buildings, each time you look at this amazing black silk work artwork something new is apparent. The sky is the of plain stitched silk, the remainder of the silk picture is profusely covered in many kinds of stitches worked in long and short stitch. The entire composition really is a wonderful and rare collectible. This probably would have been stitched by a wealthy lady in the 18th century and would have taken many weeks if not months to finish, this was in a time when being accomplished in sewing, painting, music etc was a sign of wealth for a young lady. A great Georgian rarity.
