Exquisitely executed oval needlework compositions featuring elegant female allegorical figures in interestingly textured needlework, one with a long laurel branch, the other with a very refined and attenuated cornucopia. The background shrubbery and trees are rendered in a knotted technique that conveys the texture and play of light on the leaves. Faces and hair are painted on silk. Late 18th or early 19th century.
