Antique Cutwork Embroidered Linen Bedcover with Cupid : C1910 France
A large decorative cutwork and hand embroidered bedcover dating from around 1910.
Handmade in France, this would work well as a bedcover, a throw or as a curtain or wall hanging.
It has a lovely central oval with a winged, dancing Cupid and floral motifs.
All of the embroidery has been worked in off white silk thread which contrasts well with the natural biscuit colour of the linen. It is finished with a hand knotted fringe down two sides.
The textile is in excellent antique condition with some broken threads which can easily be repaired. It has some nice historic mends and darns.
All of our textiles and costumes are antique and as such have all the idiosyncrasies of an aged and loved piece of cloth, so small flaws, marks and signs of wear are to be expected and are an inherent part of their charm.
