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

Miss Cornwall's School, CT sampler - Huber

Laura Mitchel
Antique Needlework Sampler
Miss Cornwall's School
Glastonbury, CT dated 1830

Laura Mitchel, at age 13, in 1830, worked this striking Family Register needlework sampler at Miss Cornwall's school in Glastonbury, Connecticut. She recorded the births and marriage of her parents and the births & deaths of her siblings.

Laura at age 13 was no doubt boarding in Glastonbury, CT while attending school because her family lived 50 miles away in South Britain, CT.

Attached to the back is a page from the New Haven City Gazette dated April 22, 1830

Silk on linen; 20 ¾" x 26" framed.
