18th c. Georgian Silk Miniature Boy with Dog Embroidery Needlework
Precious late 18th / early 19th century silk work miniature of a boy playing with a dog. Silk on silk embroidery in damask stitch and french knot. The exquisite french knot work is used to convey the coat of the dog, the hair of the boy, and the botanical foliage. Period frame with gilded fillet and bubble glass. 19th c. tobacco box backing a later addition.
Part of Glee's collection for 50+ years. Truly a rare jewel.
Frame: 4.5" x 4.65"
