TEACHING PULL DOWN POSTER
SPECTACULAR WALL GRAPHICS
This kind of strong linen / canvas backed chart is a detailed graphical teaching medium, which was used in various forms in classrooms all over Europe.
Coming from a German grammar school, this chart has seen medium use, the material and print still in excellent condition.
Pull down type with original black wooden supports, hanging string and string to fasten together. The canvas material has been trapped between two halves of a wooden rod, top and bottom.
As expected from school room handling, some wear can be expected, in this case absolutely minimal, the chart is very clear and vibrant. The print is on a clean buff background, the backing a strong cream linen.
A small stain in no 4 stitch on the front, some smaller ones on the back canvas, shown in the last photo.
The subject is quite amazing, the range of embroidery stitches shown on the outer edges of the graphics, with a little school girl in the centre, working on her project, the whole scene set within an advertising scheme for MEZ yarn, still in business after 200 years of producing and selling craft materials.
28 stitches shown alltogether, from basic to complicated, back stitch to Hardanger and Kilim stitch.
Produced by a specialised printing and artists group in Karlsruhe , Germany.
Certainly a particularly decorative and interesting piece, a brilliant backdrop or wall art and a very sought after interior design object.
