H-CW001 Embroidered border
Seen on the Catawiki auction website, a fragment of beautiful antique woolwork embroidery, photographs clear enough to chart. There was no way to contact the seller elegantiques of Europe, so no permission to show the photographs except a fair-use thumbnail. A wide border suitable for use in furniture covering and decorative pillows, maybe also as belt for clothing.
No permission to show the fullsize original images, charted by Sytske Wijnsma.
