The embroidery on this amazing vintage 1920's - 30's padded tea cozy is beautifully worked, with a different floral bouquet on each side.  The flowers are embroidered using various methods to achieve a dimensional effect, including French Knots, padded and satin stitch.  Variegated thread colors were also used for shading, to add texture and enhance the 3-D effect.

A matching gold ribbon, which appears to hand gathered and applied ribbon work, decorates and trims the edges.

This large cosy is in very nice estate condition.  It actually does not appear to have ever been used, as it is free of water marks, wear, snags, tears, etc.   The interior is spotless.   The exterior satin surface does show some very tiny light speckles, for lack of a better term.  I tried to capture this in a picture, but it is just too light and subtle, really only visible if cozy is angled to the light just right.  I believe this is just age/storage related, possibly minor soiling which may resolve with soaking, but regardless, is inconsequential and not obvious.  The ribbonwork could stand to be fluffed a little, as it is likely somewhat flattened from storage.  

A very glamorous, beautifully hand embroidered vintage cozy, with fine period ribbon work decoration.
