What a wonderful vintage needlepoint with musical theme! The centerpiece of this vignette is the sheet music of "Love's Old Sweet Song," a Victorian parlor song published in 1884 by composer James Lynam Molloy and lyricist G. Clifton Bingham [wikipedia]. Featuring musical instruments, roses and other old-fashioned flowers against a deep rose background, the scene couldn't be more Victorian aesthetically. The needlework was expertly done, using several kinds of stitches to define the strings of the violin and harp and create depth and texture (please see photos and use zoom). The canvas has been stretched over a padded surface and professionally framed in a gold frame. We estimate the picture was created between the 1940s and 1960s and perhaps reframed more recently. Ready to hang and enjoy for decades to come. Feel free to ask questions before purchasing. (And do yourself a favor: google the name of the song and listen to an old recording by John McCormack on YouTube. You'll be immediately transported to a Victorian parlor where you can eavesdrop on the sweet murmurings of a courting couple.)

APPROX. DIMENSIONS:
Overall: 13 1/8 x 30 5/8 in.
Exposed Canvas: 11 1/2 x 28 7/8 in.

CONDITION: Superb vintage condition. The canvas is intact with no moth damage or stains. There are a couple of nicks on the frame which can be easily touched up if a more pristine look is desired. A two-inch section of the paper dust cover is torn along the top edge.

A NOTE ABOUT VINTAGE: Everything we sell at AlegriaCollection is vintage, meaning that it's at least 20 years old, often much older. Consequently, most of our items show evidence of previous use and, in general, this is viewed as adding to the aged character of a piece. We make every effort to accurately describe any flaws and encourage you to carefully read the description, particularly when purchasing vintage as a gift.
