These hand embroidered designer appliques were meant to be trimmed from the cotton organdy backing and stitched to dresses and sweaters circa 1940/50's. Applique is thickly embroidered with silky rayon floss in satin stitch with bullion stitched details. The embroidered applique is in excellent condition. The cotton organza backing on the appliques has some patina but this is meant to be cut away. Lovely floral appliques measure about 13 inches long by 5 inches in width each. Price is for one applique. Please choose a color.
