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


New England c.1800 sampler - Huber
ABIGAIL WEBSTER
New England c.1800


This beautifully wrought sampler was apparently not quite finished when Abagail died on September 1, 1802. Her seven year old brother died the next day. Someone stitched a memorial verse at the bottom in memory of Abigail and her brother. Even with her early demise she left something delightful for our eyes.

Abigail surrounded this very ambitious sampler with an unusual solidly stitched flowering border with a black background.

Silk on linen; 30 ¼" x 20" framed.

$6,500
