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.

If you'd like to read more about the history of the linen you can check out my blog post about it here: http://marysgranddaughter.blogspot.com/2009/06/look-what-i-found.html
