{1950s Handmade Silk Roses Framed in Gilded Wood under Bubble Convex Glass}

Such a unique and very romantic, gilded wooden frame with dark pink roses that are handmade out of silk. 
They look so realistic atop the burgundy velvet. 
The bubble convex glass makes it into a very rare and special wall hanging. 
Quite large with 12.5 x 16.5 x 2"
Please visit my on line boutique for more information on this vintage French Country Style piece. Spectrenoir  click on link.
Just an enlarged corner of this beautiful piece which I got at a Dutch Estate Sale.
Due to the bubble convex (domed) glass it is extremely hard to capture on camera without any glare. 
 The photo below shows the flash that I used, but less glare...
This one shows more the true color of the silk roses and the burgundy velvet on which they are mounted.
The photo below, taken from the side, gives a lighter color of the velvet but that is just because of the
nap. 
Photo below pretty much shows the true colors of the silk roses.
Don't you love something timeless romantic?

  12. Dearest Mariette; What gorgeous and delicate beauty your Handmade s has♡♡♡ Yes, I also love the way you expressed this work "Timeless romantic"♪ And the gilded wooden frame adds the elegance for the precious Silk Rose. I thought reflection of the convex glass also is the added touch, Dear friend.

    Thank you so much for your sweet comments despite my absence. I wish both of you are having wonderful new month of the year.
    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*
