1956 French Ballet Dancer Ballerina Tapestry

  • This has been made by a mother as a present to her daughter ( inscribed on the back)

  • Signed and dated 23rd December 1956

  • We believe this is ‘needlepoint’ work. Made with wool to create the picture.

  • Still vibrant in colour and a design.

  • The pink stripped background is especially appealing, and the picture is framed and glazed in its stunning ornate original French frame.

  • Inscribed on the back: we cannot read all the writing on the back, but at the top it says:

    “a ma fille” To my daughter, and further down ” fait pas maman, 23-XII-56″ made by Mum, 23rd December 1956.

  • Condition as seen. There is a hole in the board at the back where the writing is, which does not affect the tapestry.

  • There is a stain on the right hand side of the frame ( top ) – if you also look closely the first line of light pink next to the stain is discoloured a small amount – presumably from something spilt on the frame – it isn’t particularly obvious, but is there.

  • Otherwise there may be the odd chip / mark on the frame etc, but is as seen.

  • The existing hanging rope is still on the back which is looking tired. We have also added 2 x heavy duty hanging brackets which would work better for hanging.

  • Purchased in South West France.

  • Measurements : ( Including Frame )

  • Height: 81 cm
  • Width: 61.5 cm
  • Please email for delivery options.
  • Part number: 1311-IN1
