    This piece of needlework was done by one of my ancestors as a memorial to her grandmother. The glass in the frame has been broken since before I was born. I don't have the measurements handy as it has been wrapped up again for protection, but I think it's about 20 x 28. The second picture is of the detail showing the names.

      Such a wonderl treasure . I would get glass on it asap so that it doesn't get damaged . Beautiful Post !

      Just wonderful. I agree with Mani and would have it professionally re-glassed with UV protected glass. That way you can hang it up and celebrate your history.

      The only reason I haven't had anything done to it is because I'm hesitant to touch the original reverse-painted glass. I'm wondering if it's possible to have a second layer of glass mounted in front of that piece so the original date and initials could still show. Thank you both for your comments!
