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


rachel & jacob sampler - Huber

RACHEL & JACOB
needlework picture sampler
Philadelphia, PA 1772


Inscribed: 1772 Jacob Journey to Laban and Meets with Rachel Genefis 29. This incredible needlework picture worked by an unknown young lady portrays the love story of Rachel and Jacob. The smaller figure to the right of Jacobís boot is most likely depicting Leah, Rachelís older sister, who Jacob was tricked into marrying by her father. To gain Rachelís hand, Laban was required to work for her father for another seven years. The work is filled with animals and symbolism and characteristic of other Biblical stories that were worked in the Philadelphia area often on silk backgrounds.

Silk on fine linen; 16 x 21 inches sight.
