American Arts & Crafts Framed Silk Embroidery of Two Dogs

$4,500

About

Presumed to having its origins in the United States and done in the Arts & Crafts period, this extremely intricate and realistic depiction of two hound dogs bridled together is done completely in various colors of silk thread. The faces and bodies of each dog are highly detailed executed through the use of several stitching techniques for depth and shading as well as the subtle variations in the colors chosen of the threads themselves. The maker of this embroidered piece is unknown as the work is unsigned. The framed dimensions are as posted and the artwork itself within the frame measures 13.5 x 10.5 inches . Please note that this work is under glass, so the darker vertical blocks on either side of this piece are shadows due to the lighting conditions and are not representative of the condition of the artwork.
