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

Story of Esther needlework from Huber

Story of Esther c. 1650

A beautifully stitched canvas work picture depicting the entire Old Testament story of Esther worked in England by an unknown stitcher. The windows in the castle are covered with mica which makes them highly reflective. This is a common but effective technique used to enhance 17th century needlework. The needlework is extremely fine with 2,300 stitches per square inch, approximately 650,000 stitches in total.

Silk and mica on linen; 16 1/4" x 22 1/4" with frame.
