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

sampler from Stephen and Carol Huber by Sarah Brown
Sarah Jane Brown
Massachusetts c.1810 Sarah stitched this graphic sampler depicting a church flanked by trees including a weeping figure and a monument which appears to be inscribed to someone who died at age 62? (It is difficult to read). The church and yard are solidly stitched and the sampler is further enhanced with flowering vines, alphabets, and numbers all surrounded with a saw tooth border. The uncluttered design and the use of unbleached linen add to its graphic appeal. Accompanying the sampler is a portrait of Sarah as a young woman.
Inscribed: Sarah Jane Brown Aged 8. years. The verse reads, In books or working we'll/ Let my first years be past/ That I may give for every day/ Some good account at last.

Silk on linen: 16 3/4" x 17 1/4" sight.

$12,500 (for sampler and portrait)
