Fabulous Victorian silk velvet and chenille needlework wall hanging depicting a bouquet of flowers. Beautiful deep blue ground. The flowers are built out from the ground and have a nice three dimensional quality.

This piece hangs from a nice brass rod (and it might be pretty to tie a ribbon to each end of the rod, then hang it from the ribbon?). Backed with what appears to be a nicely napped brown cotton flannel. The finials on the rod will unscrew so that the rings can slide off.

Measures 22 x 17 1/2 inches, with the rod and trim adding a bit. Unmarked, circa 1880.

Overall condition is excellent for a Victorian textile--objects of this type are so often dry, brittle and in tatters. On this one, the ground fabric seems strong and the colors are vibrant. There is some crushing to the velvet and I found two of the chenille threads that are loose, but these are hard to find unless you are poking at it. One of the brass rings is missing and the piece has been connected to the rod with thread (see image), and another ring has come loose. Sometimes the fluffy chenille around the hanging passementerie at the bottom will move off of the center section, but you can just push it back into place.
