1840s Berlin Work hand painted Cornucopia with flowers charted pattern

$12.95

Small antique hand painted Berlin Work charted pattern for needlepoint dating from the 1840s– the graph lines and symbols were printed on the paper, then the colors filled in by hand as you can see in the closeups. 5-1/8″ high by 6-1/4″ wide.

The original paper was glued to another piece of paper at some point in time; it’s still in very good condition for its age with clear colors and the paper is supple, not at all brittle. A triangular piece is missing from the right side but it only affects the graph paper background. It had been stored folded and the vertical crease line is still visible with a little paint loss along the fold line.
