Our client’s grandma has a tradition of creating a needlepoint piece for each of her grandchildren when they get married. We absolutely LOVE the bold colors and fine detailing in this one celebrating her granddaughter and her husband’s elopement on the beach! After blocking and stretching the work, we archivally presented it in a gold bamboo moulding from Roma’s “Vintage” collection with Crescent matting and Tru Vue Museum glass.


Tammis Keefe (1913-1960) was a prolific textile designer who created colorful and eye-catching designs for tea towels and handkerchiefs. This particular one is signed as “Peg Thomas,” which was a way for retailers to sell her work when others had exclusive rights to her signed “Tammis Keefe” designs. We archivally presented it as a sew mount onto Artique matting from Larson Juhl with a rustic blue moulding from Furst Bros’ “Picket” collection and Tru Vue Conservation Clear glass.
