Hello,

Thank you for the image.

What you have is actually an embroidered needlepoint work with stumpwork, or 3d and mixed media elements. This is done with needle and thread and the bead materials. A tapestry is woven with a warp and a weft on a loom.

The framing dates this to the 1st half of the 20th century.

On today's market, you could garner up to $225 for this.
