Stephen & Carol Huber: 17th - 19th Century Needlework

Mary Brown
House sampler
Pennsylvania dated 1812

Mary was a 10 year old schoolgirl when she worked this impressive house sampler. She included a large brick center-hall house flanked with paired birds, trees, and various flowering motifs and a verse of encouragement for progressive young ladies that still rings true today.

Virtue and wit with science join-d/ Refine the manners form the mind/ And when with industry they meet/ The female character’s complete.

Silk on linen; 19 ¾” x 20” framed.
