Antique Silk Embroidered Wall Hanging with Storks: circa1930 Vietnam
Dating from around 1920/30 this lovely floss silk embroidered wall hanging with a scene of storks feeding in a water landscape.
Worked in beautifully soft coloured silks the work is highly skilled and includes stumpwork areas on the heads of the two birds in the foreground which gives a three dimensional quality.
These Vietnamese embroideries are worked on a natural unbleached heavy cotton which contrasts beautifully with the glossiness of the silk floss thread.
The birds seem to shine and gives the birds an iridescent quality.
The textile is antique and has an overall patina of age, so rubs to the surface of the silk threads, some loose threads and small marks, nothing that’s detrimental to the piece as a whole and all as you would expect in an antique textile.
