Colorful Checkerboard Antique Needlepoint Square, Larger of Two

Regular price $28.00

Pure joyful color! I believe this was meant to be made into a potholder, but it was never backed (which I think is a good thing, as one gets to see the back!) It could be made in one yet, but I might be inclined to frame it as is--c. 1870s or so I believe but looking ultra modern.

5" x 5" and in very good condition, clean and crisp, with super saturated color and neatly hand-stitched hem on reverse.  There are just a couple of lost stitches, as documented. The ring could be removed from the backside by snipping the black thread that holds it.
