A beautiful late eighteenth century silk work embroidered picture depicting “Hope”.
An allegorical female figure, classically dressed, sits on the sea shore beneath a tree with an anchor beside her. On the far horizon there is a sailing ship.
The silk work on these early subjects is very fine and over time becomes frail.
As can be seen there are one or two areas where the silk has broken away.
This faded glory does not detract however from what is an appealing neo-classical piece.
Within its original very fine burr walnut veneered frame with gilt mount and hanging ring.
English C.1780.
