Velvet flower and chenille work velvet table runner

Hope this will inspire! This is a velvet table runner that I believe was embroidered in the 1930's. The embroidery is approximately 18 inches in length and embroidered at each end on brown velvet fabric.  I rarely find or see chenille work, and the last piece I saw was in an New Orleans antique store. The 2mm stitches were embroidered with some type of "crinkle" ribbon.
