Antique silkwork picture.

 

Depicting a female figure mourning the grave of 'Werter'.

Believed to be based on the very popular romantic novel from the Georgian period 'The Sorrows of Young Werter' by Goethe.

Probably dating from the late 18th/early 19th century period.

In complimentary, original frame

Measuring: 40cm X 33cm.

The embroidery has quite a bit of wear and fading to it, it was bought as an interior design piece rather than for a textile collector, we think it looks fab. Please see photographs for more details.
