Head in the clouds is embroidered in charcoal, red and white on beautiful homespun linen that is between 80-120 years old. The porcelain doll arm is from Germany and was dug from the earth on the grounds of an old doll factory that operated between 1890-1920. The piece is framed in a vintage metal embroidery hoop with spring tension that is 5 1/4 inches in diameter. The fact that the hoop is aged and a bit tarnished really adds to this piece. Head in the clouds is backed with wool/rayon blend felt and is signed and dated on the back. It hangs with a simple 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
