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

Pittsfield, NH sampler - Huber

Lucy White
Antique Needlework Sampler
Pittsfield, NH dated 1823

Lucy at aged 12 worked this sampler which includes alphabets, flowering fine borders, beautiful flowering basket motifs and a verse yearning for guidance over the slippery paths of youth. Apparently It has never been easy for 12 year olds. The sampler is inscribed: Lucy White aged 12 years - Pittsfield August 8 1823
The source of wisdom I implore
Thy aid to guide me safely o'er
The slipry paths of youth

O deign to send a steady ray
To point the sure and certain way
To value and to truth

Silk on linen: 17" x 17 ½" sight.
