#84 Early Figural Embroidered Velvet

Fine early passementerie on black velvet fabric that was acquired through a French museum deaccession. This early 19th century (or older) work is in mint condition. The figure walking across the land appears to be dressed in finery. Metallic threads were utilized in his hat and cloak, and for the striping on his jacket and breeches. A seed bead border frames the scene. Threaded reverse.
