hi Jennifer
Date on the back is1936 reframed. Sorry but that's all we know
Expert:  AppraiserJM replied 1 year ago.
I need to clarify--the back is covered with a frame, and the frame indicates it was framed or reframed in 1936?
Expert:  AppraiserJM replied 1 year ago.
And could you please upload a close-up of the stitchwork?

Thanks. Can you upload a close-up of the stitchwork? Also, where did you get the 1936 date? (Sorry, I'm just a bit confused about where all the dates are coming from. The tapestry appears to be 20th century.)

I'm doing this for an elderly lady. And she said there was a date on the back which I couldn't find but she was adamant it was there. She seems to think it's worth something
