As you may have gathered, I am enjoying doing some work at the local museum. Where this embroidery now has my attention.
A very large size is HERE.
What has me, is that this appears to be a very early embroidery of a colony, possibly with icebergs in the background.
I'm not sure if it is Australian. There is a rough Union Jack on one flag, and this one with stripes and three stars on the right:
The very large one of that is HERE.
The whole thing is mainly long stitch, and has me fascinated. Does anyone know the flag, or have any suggestions as to what I should be looking for???? Nothing is known about where it came from. These photographs are through glass in low light, so don't show just how complex and detailed this work actually is.
You can get some idea of the size from Joan's hand under the photo - it is quite large, and in an old frame.
