Inscribed: Wrought by Cynthia Williams 1803

Worked at the Mary Balch school in Providence, Cynthia stitched a shaded urn and basket arrangement that is found on several other needlework pictures from the school. The floral garland with bowtie ribbons is similar to a design worked at the Misses Pattens' school in Hartford, Connecticut. The stitched inscription is characteristic of the Balch school.
