Wild flowers done in embroidery on linen and pencil and watercolour on paper. This was done in 1913 by a 13-year-old for an exhibition of drawings in 1915, for the Royal Drawing Society. Details are on a piece of paper glued to the board.

The embroidery and painting were already pre-mounted and come with the bevelled mats, which you could simply reuse. Tiny holes at some top corners indicate that these may once have been pinned to the wall.

The embroidery is in very good condition and the colours are bright. One hopes that the 13-year-old pupil, Mary Savory, who executed these was at least rewarded with a prize for her effort!

This set will be sent to you flat.

Size of each matted piece: approx. 10.75" x 13"
Size of artwork: 7.25" x 8"
