Lot 543Votive silk embroidery with metal thread stitching. probably Italian, 17 in./18. Century
In the centre of this very intricately crafted embroidery, the Christian motif of the Crescent moon to the Madonna, or Mary Immaculate. High-profiled, the green-and-red-clad mother of God stands out from the surrounding floral decor. A magnificent, metallic thread paperback leaf tendril decorates the rest of the field with rich, polychrome flower in concentric alignment on the rays. Precise bird illustrations are incorporated in the in-between spaces. A liturgical Function is to accept.
