Description:	Beautifully framed antique American silk embroidery framed under glass. The embroidery features an eagle crest with glass eye, metallic threading for anchor, stars and stripes shield panel. Bottom banner reads 'E Pluribus Unum.' Painting on silk in lower panel with silver threaded framing around it. The main scene of depicts George Washington crossing the Deleware River.  


At the end of the 19th century the United States was rising as a world power. The U.S. Navy cruised the oceans to Show The Flag to emerging Far East countries. Merchants in the 'Treaty Port' cities of Hong Kong, Tokyo and Manila commissioned artisans to adapt their skills to create beautiful low relief embroideries for sailors and officers who visited their ports. They mixed gold, silver and copper silk thread along with hand painted panels of their ships to create a highly effective memorial of their visits to these ports.  


Embroideries featured their national symbols in impressive compositions with lovely detail work. They came in various sizes and designs. The ones owned by AT represent the largest and most impressive of those ever created. These pieces featured their ships done in one off original paint, a series of flags from the different Treaty countries, a photograph of the young sailor and often times a photo of his captain.   


Most were special ordered and turned out in an efficient fashion in time for the sailorís departure. These exceptional creations were the highest expression of this art form. They were also the most expensive and delicate works of the genre and consequently few were produced.   


This finely done highly detailed original guache painting depicts a detailed historical scene of George Washington's crossing of the Delaware River, which occurred on the night of December 25Ė26, 1776, during the American Revolutionary War. This was the first move in a surprise attack organized by George Washington against the Hessian forces in Trenton, New Jersey on the morning of December 26. Planned in partial secrecy, Washington led a column of Continental Army troops across the icy Delaware River in a logistically challenging and dangerous operation. Other planned crossings in support of the operation were either called off or ineffective, but this did not prevent Washington from surprising and defeating the troops of Johann Rall quartered in Trenton. The army crossed the river back to Pennsylvania, this time burdened by prisoners and military stores taken as a result of the battle.  


This rare example is exceptional in its size, condition and inclusion of a fine original painting a very famous historical scene. We have presented it in a magnificent gilt frame so that it can hang in a manís library as a piece of art.  Beautifully framed American silk embroidery. Framed under glass. Eagle crest with glass eye. Metallic threading for anchor. Stars and stripes shield panel. Banner reads 'Remembrance of My Cruise China, Japan and PI' Painting on silk in lower panel with silver threaded framing around it. Teddy Roosevelt decided that America needed to deal with its Asian neighbors so he opened trade with them. It was called the Open Door policy. Gunboat diplomacy originated here. These were made for the American fleet so that the sailors could be sent home souvenirs from the orient.
