Philadelphia embroidery from Huber

Silk Embroidered Picture
Philadelphia PA c.1770 18th century Philadelphia needlework embroidered pictures on moray silk are rare. This example shares similar design elements and some identical motifs with other known pieces, see Betty Ring’s Girlhood Embroidery Vo. 2, Pgs. 355-357. The intertwined leafy vines terminating in tulips, carnations, and other various flowers bracketed by birds and insects are very graphic and resemble work done by Mary Flower in Philadelphia, whose pattern book is in Winterthur Museum's collection.

Silk on moray silk; 12 ½” x 20” sight.

$9,500
