Another piece that I'm moving on from my personal collection...
This needlepoint bears a Welsh motto "Byddwch barod" meaning "Be prepared"
I'm not very good on genealogy but think it might have links to Rev. Louis Henry King, Vicar of North Newton, Bridgwater. Its also, coincidentally, the motto of the Girl Guides!
Framed in a battered wood and gesso gilt frame, the colours on this are beautifully soft
Beautifully aged piece
Size: 43cm x 37cm
