1800s Antique French embroidered religious frame


Evocative 1800s hand embroidered decorative art dedicated to the Virgin Mary.

Scrolling calligraphy script is hand embroidered with lam̩ and silk metallic threads:

"Immacule coeur de Marie priez pour nous' which translates as 'Immaculate heart of Mary, pray for us'.

A raised celluloid figure of Mary is embellished with hand painted floral motifs and dried flowers
Rare antique frame

In its original handmade frame, which is black lacquered wood. Original glass and cardboard backing still intact. The frame is in timeworn condition - please see photographs for more detail.

This is a treasure which I found at a recent Chateau estate sale in Provence.

'Dans son jus' as they say in France, timeworn but still very special. I have not cleaned the frame/glass and it is in as found condition.

32cm in width x 42cm in height
