Beautiful old Victorian era tea cozy sides, glass bead work and silk needlepoint with a rare accent of pink - taken apart from the thick ancient padded tea cozy cosy it once was and now just waiting for some clever decorator to make them up as focal centers of a pair of fabulous down-filled and lushly fringed decorator or throw pillows. BIG at 15" across by 10", it's a fun project just waiting for you. OR, certainly you could make it back up as a freshly padded and lined English Victorian tea pot cover to keep your tea beautifully hot. Purchased in England. You are buying 2 matching panels, as shown.
Very good to excellent for age and type. The beads are all those heavy old Victorian glass beads and there are thousands of them. If any are missing, you pick them out. If any are, this is a simple stitch here or there to add in and the colors of glass bead can be easily matched at a crafting store. The yarn stitchery, needlepoint stitches, are in a silk yarn. A little age showing to some of the stitches and I see an area that has been worked into in upper right edging of one panel - slight color shift. Canvases are supple, sturdy. They would do well as opulent pillows.
