Antique Fine Needle Point Men's Yoke Collar
Antique fine needle point men's yoke collar. The color here are not faded out as it looks in the picture. The flash is being reflected from the underlying satin and it make it look faded.
It measures a total of 13" x 14". It probably was at one time sewn into a shirt. The design is sewn onto a dark gray smooth satin fabric that could be thick silk. The back of the fabric is black. As you can see the stitches are red but here are some other colors such as blue, yellow, white and some green. It does remind me of a folk art design. There is a hem partially around to keep it from unraveling. All of it is completely hand stitched. The conditions is very good for age. it is being sold as it. Some of the satin edges are unraveled a bit but this no no way effect the needle point embroidery work.
