This product is unavailable
Here's a charming antique needlepoint of a boy and girl playing with a ball of yarn with a cat. The boy appears to be holding a hoop. Love the use of the color shading and the rosy cheeks. The sleeves in this depiction are a gigot or early leg o'mutton from the 1830s period.
The needlepoint measures 12 by 14 1/2 inches. It is nailed onto a thick heavy cardboard like material.
Condition is very good, colors are still quite vivid, it just needs a nice frame.
