Here's an interesting piece of vintage stumpwork embroidery from the 1940's. The embroidery of the pillow top is nicely done, especially the bird having a great primitive look.
This was a kit or a stencil pattern goods printed by Barker Products Co, Chicago, Ill. The stamped pattern, which was then tacked to the black, or charcoal gray, wool /cotton fabric background and then the embroidery work.
Size is 16" x 16".
Condition: Embroidery is good. The dark fabric does have some wear and a couple tears at the top of the bird's head. Embroidery is very nice.
