 Litchfield, CT c.1820 embroidered memoriel

Silk Embroidered Picture
Attributed to Litchfield, CT c.1820

Elegant, and folky charm, describes this pleasing embroidered memorial featuring a rosy-cheeked, curly-headed, big-eyed young lady standing by a monument in a grassy field under the arch of full foliage trees with a blue painted sky. The surrounding white silk background is delicately embroidered with colorful flowering vines accented with bow-knots and a large carnation. The early gold guilt frame and glass may or may not be original, but they are of the right period.

Silk and watercolor on silk; 15 x 19 inches framed.
