Chippendale Firescreen

Or read this in Russian

After pretty successful experience with higher count petit point, I decided that I can make another screen, but this time on 90 count silk gauze. I found this screen in a book dedicated to Thomas Chippendale 300th anniversary of birth. It’s pretty tall 169.5cm high, the screen itself is pretty large too.

I should also say that the original screen is fully made of wood, in my version a pole and a finial are made of brass. The finial was traditional too, but I made a parrot 🙂

The screen is stitched on a 90 count silk gauze, with Chinese silk floss.

The base of the screen is made of pearwood. The finial initially was pretty simple:

Then it became a parrot (my own model brass casted)

It took me 7 months to stitch the screen, 1-2 hours a day, everyday. After finishing it, I said to myself that I’ll never make something like this ever again, but I guess it’s pretty obvious for me now, that I’ll be stitching another piece soon. And I know what it’s going to be! 😉
