Item Details


Really pretty very old footstool, not sure if its Victorian but the needlepoint is extremely faded/discoloured and worked in silks. I think its too nice to recover as the needlepoint is absolutely gorgeous, but could really do with replacement or repositioning of the braiding and re tacking (as some of the braid is hanging below the tacks), plus new underneath covering required. There is hessian underneath the underside backing and I'm not sure what the filling is but it could be horse hair or coir, it feels nice and springy when you press down on it. 

I've photographed it against my recently completed vibrant wool wallhanging so you can see how faded it is, the roses almost submerge into the taupe coloured background, but I like that with old needlepoints as the colour subtlety adds to the charm. Its almost discoloured due to its age, so is darker than it looks on the photograph.

This was one of my many never got around to projects, I was going to rebraid it but havent the time now, so have also listed the braid I was going to use.

This measures 13' diameter and stands 5.5" high.
