2088

RARE ANTIQUE CHINESE EMBROIDERED SILK WEDDING APRON SKIRT THIS ELABORATELY EMBROIDERED ANTIQUE CHINESE PAIRED APRON WEDDING SKIRT IS NOTHING SHORT OF A WORK OF ART. I KNOW THAT PHRASE IS USED A LOT, BUT IN THIS CASE IT IS WELL DESERVED. THIS PIECE OF CIRCA 1900 - 1910'S HANDMADE NEEDLEWORK IS OVERWHELMING IN ITS COMPLEXITY AND BEAUTY.

I BOUGHT THIS SKIRT AT A MAJOR AUCTION HOUSE IN NEW YORK CITY THIRTY YEARS AGO AND HAVE KEPT IT CAREFULLY STORED IN MY PRIVATE COLLECTION. I HAVE SEEN SEVERAL OF THESE KINDS OF SKIRTS, BUT I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING QUITE LIKE ITS COLOR SCHEME, A RAINBOW OF PASTEL PLEATS RANGING FROM CREAMY IVORY TO AQUA TO PINK TO SKY BLUE. NOT ONLY HAS THE FABRIC BEEN PRECISELY PLEATED BUT THEN IT HAS BEEN DELICATELY STITCHED INTO PLACE FORMING A BEAUTIFUL EFFECT SHOWN IN ONE OF THE CLOSE-UP PHOTOS. ADDITIONAL EMBROIDERED NEEDLEWORK HAS BEEN DONE ON TOP OF THE STITCHED PLEATS IN COLORFUL SILK THREADS TO COMPLEMENT THE FABRIC. IT POSITIVELY SHIMMERS!

THE TWO MAIN PANELS, WHICH WOULD FALL IN FRONT AND BACK IF WORN, ARE OF SOFT TOMATO RED. THEY HAVE BEEN OVERLAID WITH METALLIC GOLD THREADS AND FEATURE A GROUPING OF MAGNIFICENT PHOENIX AND OTHER BIRDS.

THIS ELEGANT GARMENT WAS MADE IN TWO SEPARATE PARTS WHICH FASTEN TOGETHER UNDER THE CENTER PANEL. THE OVERLAPPING STYLE ALLOWS FOR EASY ADJUSTMENT TO THE WEARER'S WAIST SIZE. IT IS NOT LINED.

THIS EXTRAVAGANTLY ORNATE SKIRT IS IN AMAZING AND EXCELLENT CONDITION. IT HAS BEEN CAREFULLY STORED AND SHOWS ONLY A COUPLE OF VERY SMALL DARK SPOTS, BARELY NOTICEABLE. IN FACT I HAD NEVER NOTICED THEM UNTIL I MADE A VERY DETAILED INSPECTION FOR THIS DESCRIPTION.

YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS RARE PIECE OF ASIAN ART. IT IS A TEXTILE MASTERPIECE WHICH COULD BE WORN FOR THE MOST SPECIAL OCCASION OR DISPLAYED WITH PRIDE IN THE FINEST HOME OR MUSEUM.

Click for more detail...

1859

RARE ANTIQUE SILK EMBROIDERY TAPESTRY INCREDIBLE, RARE ANTIQUE SILK NEEDLEWORK FOLK ART TAPESTRY OF A PASTORAL SCENE. I'M NOT SURE OF ITS EXACT ORIGIN, BUT BASED ON THE SUBJECT MATTER AND STYLE, IT IS FROM GREECE. THE LETTERING ON THE EMBROIDERY SAYS "AMIRSA". IT IS A GREEK WOMAN’S NAME, WHO WAS PROBABLY THE VERY SKILLED ARTISAN WHO EMBROIDERED THIS TAPESTRY AND THEN PROUDLY SIGNED IT. THE DESIGN HAS A NAIVE QUALITY, QUITE TYPICAL OF THE VICTORIAN ERA, WHICH IS SIMPLY CHARMING. THE TAPESTRY IS ABOUT 100 YEARS OLD AND IS MOST UNUSUAL WITH TINY PHOTOGRAPHS FOR THE FACES OF THE THREE CHARACTERS. EVERYTHING ELSE IS PORTRAYED ALL IN A WIDE ARRAY OF NEEDLEWORK STITCHES. THERE ARE SIX SHEEP GRAZING AND DRINKING FROM A FOUNTAIN, AND TWO INTERESTING DOGS, AS WELL AS FANCIFUL STYLIZED TREES AND FLOWERS. THE CAREFULLY EXECUTED STITCHING IS VERY FINE WITH MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF STITCHES FOR A VARIETY OF TEXTURES THROUGHOUT THE LARGE PIECE. [BE SURE TO SEE THE CLOSE-UP PHOTOS.] THE THREADS AS WELL AS THE BACKGROUND FABRIC ARE ALL SATINY SILK. THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL LIGHTWEIGHT CANVAS BACKING LAYER FOR SUPPORT. THIS GORGEOUS PIECE IS FROM A PRIVATE COLLECTION AND DESERVES A PLACE OF HONOR IN A LOVING HOME. IT HAS BEEN KEPT IN A CEDAR CHEST AND NEVER DISPLAYED IT, SO THE COLOURS ARE STILL BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL. THERE ARE VARIOUS SHADES OF GREEN, GOLD, TEAL, BLUE, RED, WHITE, TAN, GREY, AND PINK ON A SHIMMERING IVORY BACKGROUND. SIMPLY OUTSTANDING! IT WAS HARD TO PHOTOGRAPH THIS AND CAPTURE THE SPLENDID DETAILS. IF YOU LOVE FINE NEEDLEWORK, YOU WILL BE IMPRESSED WITH THIS WONDERFUL WALL HANGING. 37 INCHES WIDE X 21 1/2 INCHES TALL. QUALITY ALL THE WAY.

Click for more detail...

1191

BICENTENNIAL ART NOUVEAU LADY HANDMADE NEEDLEWORK PILLOW THIS IS AN UNUSUAL VINTAGE HANDMADE NEEDLEWORK PILLOW FEATURING A LADY WHO LOOKS LIKE A POSTER FROM THE ART NOUVEAU PERIOD. THE FUNNY PART IS THIS PILLOW IS FROM THE BICENTENNIAL YEAR. THE BORDER SURROUNDING THE LADY'S PORTRAIT HAS THE DATES OF 1776 AND 1976, AS WELL AS 200 YEARS WORKED INTO THE BACKGROUND DESIGN. ART NOUVEAU DESIGN WAS REDISCOVERED AND POLULARIZED DURING THE HIPPIE ERA OF THE LATE 1960'S AND 1970'S, SO I GUESS IN A STRANGE WAY THIS ALL MAKES SENSE--EVEN IF IT SEEMS AN ODD CHOICE FOR A BICENTENNIAL THEME. COLORS ARE IN THE RUSTY ORANGE FAMILY, AGAIN A POPULAR SHADE IN THE 1970'S. MAKES A BOLD STATEMENT IN ANY ROOM. GOOD CONDITION AND A GREAT CONVERSATION PIECE.
