New England Schoolgirl Floral Embroidery, Vacant Family Record
Anonymous, Early 19th-Century,
Silk on silk



Nested birds, birds perched on trees above figures flanked by trees; a cenotaph-like urn festooned with ribbon and bowknots centered by dog and bird…these vignettes centering vacant center…all within an elaborate floral border. Unfortunately, the center section worked in pencil remains unfinished. There are minor losses to border not effecting embroidery; toning, and stains. There is minor thread loss limited to center. The work is mounted within an appropriate non-period frame. With some work it is likely that the penciled record may be identified; appears to be a family named Perry.
(Frame: 22 x 18.5"; view: 19 x 16")
