Georgian black silk work of young peasant girl. The scene is beautifully embroidered in monochrome tones depicting a girl gathering up sheaves of corn in her long skirts, standing below a tree with the corn field behind. In original carved oval gilt frame with framer’s label on the reverse: Freeman. Carver and Gilder, No. 2 London Lane, Norwich. Norfolk.
There is some discolouration to the silk as well as a small area of loss to the sky.
English, circa 1780
