Rare Vintage Embroidery Guest Sign - Handstitched Embroidered Poem - Standing Invitation
Guest - you don't have to thank us or laugh at our jokes, come early and often - you're one of the folks!
With all the joy of a warm welcome, this embroidered guest sign is so fun to hang above the coffee bar or cocktail cart in your guest cottage or your AirBnB. In gorgeous retro colors of mint, peach, black, and seafoam green, this is a rare piece of needlework that captures all the charm of vintage hospitality.
Rescued from a frame on the brink of destruction, this cloth is in lovely shape with strong and sturdy stitches and leaves plenty of room around the edge for reframing so that it can welcome friends and family for years to come.
- Rare vintage needlework

In bright and clean condition. Originally the colors of the thread on front were bright and more vibrant but have faded to lovely pastel shades over time (as seen from the thread colors on the reverse side).
There is some yellowing around the edges due to old glue residue from when it was kept in a frame previously. There are a few small black marks on the inside border about 1.5" inches from the edge, which is paper residue from an old black mat board. All of these previous bits of past framing marks are ancillary flaws that can be covered over once reframed. All of the stitch work is tight and the cloth around the embroidered art is clean and bright.
Measures 15" inches (length) x 11" inches (width)
