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


Huber Family Record sampler by Harrington

Ruth Harrington
Family Record Sampler
Charlestown, MA c.1810

Family record samplers with apple tree motifs were popular and graphic depictions of family units. This lavish example stitched by Ruth Harrington, probably when she was about 11 years old, is embellished with an arched swag and tassel border, and a very ambitious overall stitched background.

Ruth was the daughter of Solomon Harrington (b. July 3, 1765) and Hannah Pierce (b. Feb. 7, 1770)

Silk on linen; 14 ¾ x 11 ½ sight.
