Antique Irish Silk Embroidery Depicting Gypsies

 

An absolutely stunning and very charming piece, originating from Ireland.

 

A very interesting subject matter depicting a young gypsy girl who appears to be asking if you want you palm reading who is walking along a pathway under the trees. in the background some old women are sitting around a cauldron over a fire, almost with like, you get the feeling this is happening in the evening.

 

The colour palette is monochrome with differing shades of grey and black on a light grey background.

 

The stitching is used in differing sizes to great effect when viewing the image as a whole.

 

This piece most likely dates from the 19th century but could possibly be earlier.

 

All framed within a beautiful antique gilt gesso frame.

 

Measuring: 31cm high X 24cm overall.
