Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

Antique Society Silk Embroidered Centerpiece

Lipstick Red "He Loves Me" Roses

Item Number D25105

Amazingly realistic silk embroidered roses embody the perfection sought with the society silk embroidery style.  The Kensington stitch used layers, directionality and fine gradations of shade to achieve the botanical realism we have come to so thoroughly admire.  My photographs did not do this piece justice -- The silk shading is much finer and more detailed than shown below. The creamy white linen is fine and clear.  I most loved the aphid chewed leaf but the thorny scalloped hem really made me smile...Amazing work in lipstick red "he loves me" roses...Freshly laundered and pressed, in excellent condition.  c.1890 - 1910  16" round
