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

Huber - Goodridge family silhouettes

Lynn, Massachusetts c.1815

The silhouettes from the left: Dan Graves, Sally Goodridge, no name, Polly Goodridge, and Moses Goodridge.

Sally worked a family register format typical to the Lynn area recording her parents and their ten children. The solidly worked lower section with a monument and weeping willow tree commemorates the deaths of two family members, Rand and Eliza. At the center is a large and stately 3-story, twin chimney Federal house behind a picket fence; to the right, three sheep and a town. The embroidered scene is surrounded by a stylized rose-vine and foliage border.
A group of five hollow-cut silhouettes, all in their original frames, depicting family members and three copy books accompany the sampler.

Silk on linen; 20 ¾ x 17 sight.
