Vintage Needlepoint Spotted in the Wild UPDATED

Meg saw these three vintage needlepoint pieces at the Ringling Brothers Circus owners' home, Ca’ d’Zan, located in Sarasota, Florida.  There is a huge six panel screen, a pair of matching upholstered chairs and a card table.  The chair behind the card table may or may not be needlepoint.  I cannot tell.  Use the side arrows to see everything.

Thanks, Meg!

UPDATE: By coincidence, this morning a friend sent me this very well written explanation of why the author rescued a piece of needlework and what it means to do so.

Time to hit the thrift shops to rescue the lost!
