~ THIS ITEM IS AVAILABLE FOR LOCAL PICK UP ONLY (SATURDAY OR SUNDAY) I AM LOCATED IN HUNTERDON COUNTY NEW JERSEY~ THANK YOU!
I will take the 1,000 shipping cost off before purchase after I speak with you about local pick up.
Listing is for one absolutely gorgeous early antique woolwork needlepoint fire screen that I purchased from a family that has acres and acres of property loaded with barns full of early antiques that they are starting to sell off.
I was very lucky to have purchased this very fine early piece for someone who loves true antiques as much as I do!
This beauty boasts a beautiful pictorial needlepoint (rarely seen) measuring 17-1/2" long X 15" wide... just the needlepoint portion itself.
It captures an image of an old women sitting in her very old needlepoint chair reading her paper that states JOHN BULL.
Sitting next to her chair is a gorgeous table with a teapot, teacup and book. It must of sure be a very relaxing time for her!
This pictorial needlepoint is in excellent condition!
The all wooden rounded stand that displays the needlepoint on measures 33-1/2" tall including the metal handle that is screwed in with 2 flat headed screws.
The metal handle would have pulled the needlepoint out at one time where it was framed. However I would highly suggest to you that I would not want to tug on it for fear of breaking it due to it's old fragile age!
I left it just the way it was when I cleaned it with an antique all natural cleaner and protector.
I feel that this piece is very early and I am listing it somewhere during the middle or the early 1800's and can be much older than this. I have never come across another one such as beautiful as this one!
This piece is very rare and OOAK with the pictorial pic and the rounded wooden stand that sits on 3 wooden original feet that still remain sturdy. They are also screwed it with flat nails as well.
The backing is a rose color damask fabric with a few smaller rips only.
The all wooden base may be walnut and it has a crack that runs across the full length of the front and goes through to the back side. However this is an age stress crack and I have seen it a million times in much older pieces. It remains very sturdy and does not move at all and it looks like it was never even repaired!
That is how well stuff was made back them. I am listing it at a fair price because it is very rare and OOAK piece then most with the pictorial pic... they go for much more money.
This piece also has NO SMELL OF SMOKE OR ODORS as some old antique pieces do! I do smell everything!!
A lovely piece for a decorator that is redoing an early period home or just for a fine collector of a beautiful needlepoint piece!
