Item/Description: Vintage ca 1940s-1960s “Southwestern Hopi Indian Girl & Snowmen” hand-beaded needlepoint embroidery framed picture.
The delightful vibrantly colorful scenic imagery depicted in this completely beaded folk arts & crafts needlepoint embroidery work is that of a Native American Southwestern Hopi tribe Indian girl standing in between two (2) tiny snowmen/snowman figures. She is wearing an exquisitely colorful cultural heritage costume with matching moccasins that contains all the colors of the rainbow and then some a la Joseph’s Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat! In one hand she is holding a small bouquet of flowers.
The rustic Western Americana-style carved wooden frame is a perfect complementary decorative enhancement to the sweetly charming imagery contained within, and would make a marvelous addition to any cottage shabby chic interior design theme/motif.
The colors utilized for the rainbow imagery portion of this lovely picture are a breathtaking and sparkly array of cornflower blue, periwinkle blue, royal blue/cobalt blue, robins-egg blue, sky blue, cherry red, maroon red, watermelon, pumpkin orange/mango orange, tangerine orange, butter yellow, bubblegum pink, hot pink, lime green, emerald green, lawn green, pearly white, and jet black.
The background beading colors are cleverly patterned/designed with two-tone shadings of pale gold & honey gold so as to give the effect to the center imagery of its appearing to be part of a vertically rectangular throw or runner.
Age/Period: Vintage - ca 1940s-1960s
Manufacturer/Identification/Markings/Country of Origin: Unknown/Unspecified
*Picture is 100% beaded and finished with what appears to be very tiny “seed beads” - some iridescent, some solidly colored (the imagery as well as the background are nothing but beads, beads, beads)
Because we are not bead experts we are uncertain as to whether the beading is solely made of glass, another type of bead material, or a combination of glass and other types of beads. The beads do, however, feel very cool to the touch.
*Frame is wood
Size/Measurements: Frame - 14 7/8"W X 15 3/4"H; Beaded Art - approximately 13 3/4" square
Quantity: One (1)
*The beadwork on this completed needlepoint embroidery picture remains in excellent and completely intact condition, retaining vibrant coloration and exuding vividly crisp detail! The darker, burnished golden coloration area beneath the green grass on which the girl is standing is NOT a discoloration in the beadwork - rather, those are actual gold-colored beads. The same is true of the difference in coloration in the background. It is intentionally beaded in two different but complementary hues, quite uniformly and evenly.
*The frame retains a lovely patina. Though there is goodly amount of varnish/coloration loss along the bottom portion of the frame, this can be readily refinished/touched up/refreshed.
