    Antique needlepoint cushion cover front

    Woolwork embroidery, square piece intended for a cushion cover. Donors estimate is around 1850. Original colors have faded. The background colors on the original are red, dark red, blueish green. The chart is done in red and dark red only, because the blueish green looked horrible when applied to the chart. Probably the original shade was different from that on the DMC palette.
