Vintage Framed Needlepoint Ballerina

This sweet needlepoint features a solo ballerina in a tutu. It came from an estate sale and appears to be a piece done sometime during the fifties or sixties--although it might even be older.
It's a very interesting picture that would look beautiful in any young lady's room or with vintage or shabby chic decor. This is the older needlepoint that is often found covering a bench. Ours is not very large but maybe a creative way could be found to do the same with this one--by attaching additional material or using a very small stool! The background color is unusual, reminding me of of butterscotch.

This is currently framed under glass with a wire for hanging. There is paper backing and I decided to leave it as it was found. So, it has not been out of the frame. There could be some information about the artist or the date either stitched on the fabric or written under the backing.

Condition: The frame is wood with gold paint. There are some dings and a chip out of the frame. There is also cloudiness under the glass. I did not remove it from the frame but if there is moisture under the glass, you will probably want to open it up and have the piece cleaned.

I love to ship internationally and have had many happy non-US customers! If you live outside the U.S. but are interested in purchasing something in my shop or have questions, please contact me. I will try to answer you as quickly as possible. If you are interested in a shipping estimate, just let me know which country you live in.

Size: Frame is 12-1/4” high, 10-1/4” wide
