New Hampshire memorial to Moses Chase - Huber

Mary Chase
Painted memorial to her father
New Hampshire c. 1820

The monument is inscribed: Sacred to the memory/ Moses Chase/ who died, Nov. 5th AD1819/ Ag 56.

This watercolor memorial was most likely painted by Mary Chase (1801-1869), the only daughter of Moses Chase, shortly after his death in 1819. Moses Chase (1763-1819) born in Newton, Rockingham, New Hampshire, and married Mary Noyes (1767-1853) in Newbury, Massachusetts. They had six children and resided in Plaistow, New Hampshire.

Mary surrounded her watercolor with a painted mat trimmed with gold foil, emulating a reverse painted glass, which is etremely rare. This charming little memorial is only 15" x 17" with the frame.
