Incredible tiny embroidery stitches, the pictures views are 5.1/8" by 3.1/4" or 13 cm by 8.5cm!

I haven't search for the original paintings/drawings they are copied from...

I collected these "needle paintings" many years ago,
more to come...

    Love these frames. Post different pics of snuff bottle . It looks with light up close that there are white veins all over the back and neck but it apears more green than black the cork inside stopper was roted so it has tape.

    Very difficult for me to capture the light and hold my tablet steady sory for the pics.
