Rare and exceptional embroidery of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Worked on fine linen, the wool embroidery stitches are remarkable. The wool yarn is superbly worked by the artist to give a three dimensional effect which appears very life like. This lovely piece is German in origin and signed and dated by the artist--J. Linder 1823. The spaniel's name is Litti.

The condition of this work is excellent for a piece of 200 years. The wool has retained its colors of white, cream, beige, black, and taupe. I see no damage to the embroidery. There is some minor damage to the linen at the very top of the piece (see photos).

Embroidery measures 19.25" high by 14" wide
Frame (not original) measures 21.5" high by 16.25" wide
There is some glare on the glass which shows up on the photos

The following inscription is handwritten on the reverse:

Frühe Biedermeier Stickerei "Sitzender Cavalier King Charles Spaniel 'Litti' " auf Leinen, u.l. sign. "J. Lindner ... 1823", verso handschriftliche Besitzerangabe "Musikmeister Jacob Edel Ingolstadt
