Vintage 50s 60s Petit Point Needlepoint Ballerina Pink Margot de Paris Large 24”


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a wonderful needlepoint that features a ballerina, rendered in petit point stitch against a needlepoint background.  The entire piece is hand made using what had been a “Margot de Paris” kit.  Margot de Paris is a French company that is still in business, supplying kits to create needle work tapestries and carpets.  The colours are very attractive in tones of pink, fleshtone, white and grey.  It is in very good condition - this was probably meant to be used as a hanging piece for framing and display, possibly could be used for a cushion/pillow, but was never used.  The canvas measures 23” by 31” while the needlepoint itself measures 15 1/2” by 24” including the unworked edge.  Charming subject, very well done, a lot of work went into making this lovely vintage piece!
