Beautiful 18th Century antique needlepoint depicting St Catherine of Alexandria

According to tradition, from a young age she devoted herself to study and converted to Christianity when she was 14. She in turn converted many others to Christianity including the Emperor Maxentius' wife
The furious Emperor condemned Catherine to death on a spiked, broken wheel but this shattered at her touch and is now her principle symbol
She was a princess and is always depicted richly dressed and crowned, as befits her rank, with her hair unbound depicting her unmarried status.
She also carries a martyr's Palm and a sword with which she was finally killed.

Hand embroidered with silk and wool, in good, unfaded colours

Gilt frame has been restored at each corner as shown- images 4/5/6/7

I traded in Portobello Road for over 20 years and have very eclectic tastes.  I like kitchenalia, folk art, garden items, early pottery, paintings, samplers, silhouettes and decorative bits and pieces.
