Victorian Beadwork Relief Fruit Basket Sculpture

Unlike anything I’ve seen. 


Beads appear to be mid to third quarter 19thc, sewn onto a weighted wire and linen / muslin form. 


Has incredible details, warmth and significant weight. Each flower is set off with contrasting leaves - unreal texture and rich color. 


Measures 8” H x 6” round at widest and stands with the aid of a later brass ring.


Significant slant and bead loss. At back are three bare spots with loose wires.
