We'll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our 'Favorites' customers. Superb late 1700s to earliest 1800s French school girl's needlework sampler, eglomise glass mat and original frame, excellent condition throughout. The needlepoint is a super-fine petitpoint on linen canvas, perfectly preserved as you see it. The eglomise (back-painted glass) has a scratch-through and gilded signature and notation letting us know it is the work of Celine Beaumont, and that she was a young student at "L'Institution de Belle Second". These early samplers represent the silk/wool work that mostly comprised the education of most girls in it's time. Art, sewing, elegant scripting, perhaps. . . not so many subjects open to young ladies, but the comportment of a lady in all the feminine arts. Very large in this original frame with original enamel-painted original glass mat, the work is 15" x 11", so you can see how super-tiny those stitches really are. The outer frame (heavy old wood frame with gilt finish) is 24.75" x 22.75" and it's nearly 2" in depth. Ready to hang. Very good to excellent condition. No flaws at all on the tightly stretched old needlework, and also none on the old original painted glass mat. The work is likely a drawing, watercolor by the girl, on the linen, and then stitched in silk and perhaps wool. Really no deteriorations visible, and certainly no holes nor tearing at all. Very fine panel of needlework. The original old frame, at or over 200 years old, is also nicely preserved with only minor loss which I've noted with "x" on our photos for your review. There is a little of that lift of tilting on the outer perimeter of the frame - flaking a little as in the section image, but not distracting. Front view of it is very nice. And yes, we'll take incredible care in prepping this fine old treasure for shipping to its next owner. Magnificent, isn't it! Return Policy: We always honor a 3-day return on our items, and guarantee them to be as described. Money back, less shipping costs, which are not refundable, so ask questions if necessary. We're easy to deal with. Shipping and Handling Policy: You are very important! Our fine inventory is very important. And your ranking of our performance is also very important! We wish to keep our 4.9 - 5 star ratings in all categories. Customer satisfaction is paramount with us, so if you're thinking we have not deserved your highest marks, please contact us and allow us to be sure your concerns are completely satisfied before you rank us. We aim for 5-star transactions every day, and depend upon you to tell us directly if we have not yet met that standard for your transaction. Thank you! We most often use USPS for our shipping needs but will be happy to ship by another carrier if you prefer. We charge only actual postage & insurance, never a handling fee and never for packaging materials. Ebay is now requiring that our clients rank us on "shipping". The shipping price, speed and handling are actually under the sole control of the delivering postal agency, not Antiques & Uncommon Treasure so please remember that and leave us high DSR rankings. As always, please also feel free to contact us if you have any problems or concerns, we'll do what we can to ensure a happy and mutually enjoyable transaction. Insurance has been eliminated as an option by ebay, forcing us sellers to either ship your items without insurance or assume that expense also. We always insure our items BUT, more importantly, pack them extremely well knowing that most are not replaceable. Again, damage in transit, while rare in our experience, is due to the postal agency handling and not caused by Antiques & Uncommon Treasure. Please remember that when leaving DSR ratings. Thanks! Our shipping days are Tuesday and Friday, paid items will be shipped on the first shipping day after payment is received (except when special circumstances exist). We prefer to use USPS whenever possible, and require all packages to be insured. If you prefer another method of shipment, please mention it. We charge only actual expense of shipment/insurance, except in the case of larger items which must have special wood crates built. Wood crate charge, when applicable, is a flat $35.00 in addition to actual postage & insurance charges. Other Information: 8.75% sales tax applicable as of April 1st, 2009 for shipments & sales within the state of California, no exceptions. If you are within CA and are a dealer buying for resale, you must provide us your active resale certificate # and acknowledgment of intent to resell or we will have to collect sales tax. No exceptions. Auction Payment Methods: Paypal: E-Check, Visa, Mastercard, etc.. Credit card payment by online service only, no direct processing.***BE SURE to also click our our "" icon here or above to see more of our inventory, offerings and venues.
