Portugal Arraiolos Embroidery

Circa 1880s Portugal Arraiolos Embroidery

This embroidery in a fine petit point stitch on a canvas foundation was probably made in a workshop in Arraiolos, a small town in Portugal where embroidered rugs were produced for many centuries. The field design of animal combats and flowering stems on a green ground is based on the model of a classic 16th century Persian carpet. – Good condition.Size 135 x 230 cm
