1940s - 1950 Pin - Hand-embroidered brooch - Thatched Cottage and Blossom Tree

This brooch is a nice example of the 1940's /1950's home-spun style, with the kind of design that features on some of the lovely hand-worked tablecloths, tray cloths and napkins as well as things like biscuit tins and magazine covers of that time. Here we have a little  white cottage with yellow  thatch and an orange front door.  It sits at the end of a golden path, flanked by green lawns and under the shade of a huge tree!  The tree appears to be covered in red and pink blossoms with a scattering of light green leaves on branches in a pale blue sky.  The stitches are covering a lot of the fabric so I have no idea what  fabric  was used but would guess it may well be rayon and I think that the work is in long stitch with knots but the needlewoman or man who created this brooch has managed to give a 3-D effect in the design.  Measuring approximately 2.25 inches by 1.5 inches,  the brooch is in very good order.  The needlework is mounted in a chromed white metal . This brooch is in an oval shaped gallery with a decorative rope border style edge. There is a clear plastic front protecting the embroidery. The back has an open  'C' type clasp and pin mount. Embroidered and hand-made brooches were made in quantity during the 'make-do-and-mend' years of world war two and they remained popular throughout the 1940's, 1950's and 1960's. You could also buy kits with threads, pre-printed designs on fabric and the necessary mounts to complete your piece of jewellery. This pin would be lovely to wear or add to your collection of Vintage brooches or old needlework.
