English Regency Period Embroidery Needlepoint Silk Picture of Goddess Aurora
This exceptional embroidered and painted silk picture depicts the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, in a chariot with a brilliant sun rising over mountains on the horizon. This piece dates from the early-mid 19th century and resides in a period frame with original glass with black and gold matte. The frame has been regilded. Frame measures 22.5 x 25.6 x 2.1 in, and the embroidered panel measures 15 x 18 in. Condition is very good. Surface is clean and there are losses visible along the left, bottom and right edges. We have not found a signature nor dismantled the frame for inspection, and are selling the work as-is.
