Price family memorial
Worked by Fanny Price
Falmouth, MA c.1805

This graphic and charming silk embroidered memorial was stitched by Frances (Fanny) Price at aged 15 while attending school. It depicts a monument with 5 urns honoring her deceased siblings.

The standing young lady that no doubt represents tearful Fanny is flanked with trees and estates. Note the three houses in the background that are barely visible.

It is inscribed:
In Memory of the Children of Lot and Susanna Price.
John Ob April 16, 1796 AE 22.3
Roxanna Ob June 22, 1802 AE 23.1
Lydia Ob March 8, 1803 AE 26.9
Chloe Swift April 19, 1803 AE33.8
Susan Ob May 4, 1805 AE 17.9

The frame is a reproduction and reverse painted glass new and there is a small split in the upper center sky. The back retains its original mounting ribbons.

Silk and watercolor on silk; 20 ¾ x 21 ¾ framed.
