The mender is embroidered on beautiful homespun linen that is between 80-120 years old. The porcelain doll arms are from Germany and were excavated from the grounds of an old doll factory that operated between 1850-1920. Each piece is framed in vintage metal embroidery hoops with spring tension that measure 7 1/4 inches in diameter. The woman on the left is holding a sewing needle and mending the heart of the woman on the right. The mender is backed with wool/rayon blend felt and is signed and dated on the back. It hangs with vintage lace ribbon.
