This is a wonderful find. It dates to the 19th C and is French. Hand embroidered bullion on silk velvet. This was made for a pair of shoes. The floral points would have gone on the front with the longer designs going on the sides and the small flower being placed on the back. Great quality and a unique textile that can be framed and displayed beautifully. Selvage sides, the piece measures 11 1/2" tall by a tad under 18" wide. Color is dark black and the metallic threads really pop in shades of bright gold, arm gold, bronze and silver. Various hand techniques utilized in the embroidery work.
