Olcott coat of arms from Huber

Olcott Family
Needlework Coat of Arms
Hartford, CT c.1807

This exquisite silk embroidered coat of arms was worked at the Misses Pattens' School in Hartford, Connecticut. The Olcotts were a prominent family in Hartford and the original frame and overall design is vertically identical to other coats of arms worked at Misses Pattens' School.

Displaying an elegant silk embroidered coat of arms in your home was a source of pride and joy especially if it was created by your highly educated daughter. One can just imagine the thrill felt by the young lady who made this anticipating the moment she would present it to her parents.

Note: Attached to the back of the stretcher as a backing is a newspaper from Albany, NY dated June 6, 1807.

Silk on silk; 22 ¼" x 19" framed.
