Fishing shack crewel embroidery - 1970s vintage framed needlework
Vintage 1970s framed crewel embroidery of a fishing shack with all the accouterments: seagulls, dinghy, pier, marsh grass on the horizon, calm blue harbor. Stitched in crewel wool on a printed linen background.
Framed in a nice redwood stained wooden frame. Homemade dust cover on the back made from a paper grocery sack and thumbtacks.
SIZE 15.75" x 12.75"
CONDITION Good. Long some of the long crewel stitches are a bit loose and need to be smoothed by fingertip before you hang it. There are some discolorations on the linen in the sky area, likely an influence from whatever the stitchery is framed on. Noticeable at close range, less noticeably from a distance. There's a smudge of white paint on the frame up on the right top.
