19th Century Dutch Religious Textile Fragment, Framed
A fantastic framed fragment of antique Dutch textile, circa 1830. The textile is accentuated by an embroidered sunburst, radiating from behind a Pelican in Her Piety, a religious image that is also the state flag of Louisiana. A raised metallic embroidery wreath of flowers and foliage cradle the central pelican and provide extraordinarily beautiful antique texture. The entire piece is trimmed in antique gold galon. The textile has recently been mounted on a shimmery champagne backing and the frame is black with silver trim.
