Beautiful old framed tapestry,

I am not sure of the age possibly 1930/40s

It is a slightly abstract picture of a garden path, flowers and a fence. Nicely done,

It is in a round light pink frame, made from a hard plastic like substance, the frame is a bit grubby and has a brown mark, it may well clean up though,

The stitch is like half a cross stitch, a typical tapestry stitch all going the same direction.

It looks like it is embroidered with silks not wool

The backing is brown paper which is roughly cut into a circle, and there is a loop for hanging

It is just under 5 inches across and the glass is domed, not flat.
