      Something is wrong here.

      There should not be knots, loose ends of thread, thread going between butterfly antenna, thread going between stems of flowers! The butterfly wings are a jumble of stitches. That is the kind of thing that is hidden on the BACK side of a piece of needle work.
      There should be no wrinkles in the fabric; this fabric has many wrinkles/puckers in it which shows it has not been properly stretched and secured to a backing board prior to matting/framing.

      It looks as if it is framed with the wrong side facing outward.

      Possibly someone removed the embroidery piece from the frame then mistakenly put it back wrong. Or maybe had a piece of embroidery and a frame so put them together— at any rate, you need to look closely at both sides of this needlework and see if it is turned backwards.

      I agree, this looks like a rush job, and probably framed by the same people who made the silk embroidery framed art work for export. Probably Asian, now we would love to see the other side.
