This beautiful and very detailed VINTAGE HEIRLOOM CHRISTMAS TREE SKIRT was hand madeby a lady from Minnesota known for her excellent cross stitch work. In spite of being vintage (made about 20 years ago) it is still in mint condition.I can find no problems with it at all. Size: 41 diameter including fringe around the edge. 38 without counting the fringe. It is decorated with three very carefully cross-stitched scenes. A beautiful snow-covered outdoor Christma tree being. Height of cross-stitched area: 14. An old fashioned Santa Claus (with buttoned-up leggings).
Carrying his pack of toys and bringing a Christmas tree along. He is accompanied by a little red cardinal. Height of cross-stitched area: 9.
An indoor decorated Christmas tree with lots of ornaments. And a train set around the base that includes several village buildings.
Houses, a church and a school. Height of cross-stitched area: 12. Top fabric detail: The top is a cream-colored woven fabric designed for cross-stitch. The cream-colored threads have delicate golden strands in them.
So there is a very subtle shimmer to the surface. Embroidery colors are rich and not faded... The camera does not show them as as colorful and beautiful as they are in person. But just to give you an idea, the reddish tablecloth it is being shown against is actually a rich cranberry color.Back fabric detail: The back is a quilted lightly padded piece of red and green plaid cotton. The workmanship is exceptional and it clearly represents a great many hours of very careful embroidery. Please see my other items.
