Victorian silk embroidery on linen square with unfinished edges.  The piece is signed  by J & M Prufert, Niagara Falls, N.Y so perhaps it was a friendship or presentation piece or this was a company which distributed stamped goods to finish.

Perhaps this lovely piece was meant to serve as a doily, possibly on a dressing table or was intended for another purpose.

Whatever the intent the workmanship of the embroidery is nicely executed.  The embroidered "fans" are worked in a golden glow color of variegated thread.  Worked both on the natural linen and tulle netted background.  Center of the piece is of natural linen with a scallop design worked in this same variegated thread.

My thought to quilt the piece as a focal point of a crazy quilt, however, I am sure someone else might like to admire this in a different way.

The square measures 12" square.  Condition is very nice.
