Sweet Old Double Sided (Partially) Hand-embroidered Potholder

Regular price $20.00

Just a little thing, which I believe lost some of the embroidery on its black silk surface along the way, but which I found too sweet to leave behind. To me makes me think of a pair of bright stars emerging from a black sky, and then on reverse just this funny little patch of colorful stitched blobs which just seem like a little flurry of exuberant moments. 

5 5/8" x 5 5/8" not including hanging loop at corner. Good condition with embroidery loss as evident, but with the silk and edging in good shape. Late 19th/early 20th c. I believe.
