antique silk embroidered memorial by Sophia Barney from Stephen Huber & Carol Huber Silk embroidered memorial by Sophia Barney

Sophia Barney wrought this Massachusetts silk embroidered memorial c.1810.

Silk embroidered memorials were very fashionable in the latter part of the 18th and early 19th centuries. This example by Sophia Barney is lacking the inscription which was intended to be filled in at a later date. Silk embroidered pictures were considered accomplishments, prized by parents, and prominently displayed.

Silk & watercolor on silk.
