Vintage Embroidered Portrait of a Lady Hand Towel with Ribbon and Flowers
I call people rich when they're able to meet the requirements of their imagination. Henry James, Portrait of a Lady
Here she is! The portrait of a lady as captured with embroidery art.
Sometimes it is easy to overlook the skill, time and talent involved when viewing a piece of vintage embroidery. This one is a beauty on multiple fronts. Let's look...
First, it contains seven different types of embroidery stitching. Second, it contains a lovely coordinated color palette in teal, spring green and marigold. Fine details are outlined in black and a touch of red on the lips. Third, its placement is simple, centered on the lower half, which looks great folded up and displayed over the handle of a bar cart, or the handle of a piece of kitchen equipment or hanging from the edge of the sink. This simple layout also gives it's new owner ample space to augment the design with their own stitchwork as well if so inclined.
Bright and colorful, it's as wonderful for functional linen service, as it is a spark of the imagination or a whimsical design aesthetic.
