more whitework pictures

Here are a couple detail shots, and some photos of the back. The embroidery is all done by hand. It has a fluffy appearance on the surface, and running stitches with visible knots on the reverse.

The piece arrived in good condition with some stains and discoloration, but I think a little TLC will improve it significantly. Mom used to wash antique textiles when she was part of the Moorestown Historical Society in New Jersey, and she gave me good instructions. Stay tuned...
