Rare Antique Womens Hand Worked Crewel Embroidered Insects Coat Small Colorful 38" Bust
This beautiful hand worked antique coat is of crewel embroidery work in bright reds, cornflower blue and greens. The border is in pale aqua. I love the moths or insects that are embroidered on the borders.
I don't know the origin of this but it was found with other items from the Victorian to 1920s period. this coat is completely hand made on what looks like a Linsey-woolsey fabric, and is lined in linen. It is simply amazing. It has no closures.
