satin central mezzotint portrait medallion of young woman. Wreath embroidered with silver yarns and spangles and red foil leaves. White silk lining. Filled with batting and paper. Condition: embroidery tarnished and worn.
Muff embroidered in chenille. From history of muffs page in Cyrillic. The chenille is probably still couched, but in satin stitch, allowing the thick brown leaves and vines. The floral swags are very tightly embroidered, and are marvels of color mixing.
