vintage 1950s “Little Boy Blue” embroidery with applique

Vintage 1950s hand embroidered panel featuring “Little Boy Blue” from the classic children’s nursery rhyme! Stem and satin stitch embroidery plus cross stitches in cotton embroidery floss on heavy off-white cotton muslin fabric, but what makes this piece really special are the patterned fabric appliques on his shirt and cap.

The embroidery is about 9″ by 10-1/2″ on a 13″ by 17″ piece of fabric, and is in excellent condition.
