Stephen & Carol Huber: 17th - 19th Century Needlework

Stumpwork 17th century dining scene  - Huber

17th Century Dining Scene
English c.1665

This small interesting needlework picture depicts a dining scene featuring a royal couple, probably King Charles II and Catherine of Braganza. It appears their guest with folded arms is waiting for a glass of wine. Or, maybe the young man is a taster and they are all waiting to see if he keels over before they imbibe. At any rate, all eyes are on the young man with the glass of wine.

Silk and metallic thread on silk; 7 ¾" x 11 ¼" with original frame.
