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

Canvaswork needlework courting scene dated 1749 - Huber

Barbara Adams
Courting Scene
Canvaswork Picture
English or American dated 1749

This rare signed and dated canvaswork courting scene is inscribed: Barbara Adams work aged 10 years March the 15. 1749

The condition is excellent and the subject is delightful. Our guess is that it is probably English because of the castle like buildings, but not necessarily, because most of these came from the same early French prints whether made in England or the colonies. Genealogy research could support it being made on either side of the pond.

Wool and Silk on linen; 16 ½" x 17 ½" framed.
