Complex design of roses and forget-me-knots in this Danish needlepoint bell pull, c.1900.
Pale beige background with rhoses in shades of dark red and brown, forget me knots in faded blues and grays. The leaves were stitched in a wide variety of moss to sage greens and medium browns.
The back is taffeta, somewhat stained. The edging is a beige twist.
Hardware is heavy solid brass with a rose design. The bottom hardware has a piece on the back to hold it evenly off the wall, something I haven't seen before.
