Mississippi River Steamer
Part of my ongoing train series which transforms the smokey plumes of vintage locomotives into playful clouds of color and swirl, but now with steamboats!
Embroidery is created by hand, directly onto the postcard, using French cotton embroidery thread and hand-dyed silk thread.
The vintage postcard from the 1920s features the Mississippi River Steamer in St. Louis. It measures about 5.5"x3.5" and will be shipped in a dusty teal custom-built frame to hold the flowing threads in place. The threads will be stiffened slightly to maintain their structure. The piece will be signed and dated on the back in pencil.
Please note, as this is a vintage postcard, it features wear and discoloration on the edges and corners, as shown in the images.
