Cretan Embroidered pockets and collar: C19th Crete, Greece
From mid 19th century Crete three beautifully embroidered fragments for costume, traditional dress.
Worked in pink silk embroidered onto a hand loomed linen ground, a pair of decorative pocket fronts and a blouse or jacket collar.
All are interesting examples of Cretan embroidery and would be good study pieces or useful additions to a collection.
In excellent antique condition with no damage. One small foxing mark on one pocket and the collar has an overall patina of age, nothing which is detrimental to the piece as a whole.
We offer a stretching and mounting service for fragments. Please contact us for details.
Pockets: 16cm L X 13cm W
Collar: 42cm L X 13cm widest width
8.5cm narrowest width
