A pretty Chinese embroidery decorated with Fo dogs, phoenixes, butterflies and flowers, framed in wood in the shape of a tray. The style of the artwork and the colors of the silk threads suggest that this may have been done around 1910 to 1930, but this is only my estimate. I am more certain that the frame is in the style of the 1930s - 1940s and if this is correct the embroidery must be earlier. This type of tray would have been used on a dressing table, but today it could easily be adapted to hang on a wall.

The condition is quite good, but the work shows some signs of wear to the threads, so some are missing (or maybe the part was never finished) because here and there we see the lines of the original drawing on which the embroidery is based. It's even possible that this is only a part of the whole job, as there is no border towards the top edge, suggesting that part of it is missing. We can see all of that in the photos; please take a good look at them and if you need more or have any questions please contact me.

The approximate dimensions: 46.5 cm x 29 cm (including visible surface 39 cm x 25.5 cm); 1590 g.
