click for an even bigger image



A large cloth patch, approximately 4 by 4 1/2 inches, executed in chain stitch embroidery. The patch appears to be a variant of the crest of the City of Dresden. The Dresden crest is usually depicted as a rampant black lion looking to the viewer's left with vertical black stripes, all on a yellow field. This patch is the basic design of the Dresden crest, with the alteration that the black stripes run horizontally on the patch. Very good condition.
