22" x 18"
This piece was painstakingly cross-stitched with colored thread by some certainly long-gone and unidentified genius. Notice the toothless grin, the confidence with which the fiddler hefts his bow, and the loving attention to detail in the clothing and violin. I'm sure this work must be at least 75 years old, but it's framed so nicely that I hesitate to pull off the frame to check for a signature or date.
