Memorial sampler by Sharp - Huber

Martha Sharp
Memorial to her sister Mary Ann
England c.1832

This beautiful colorful memorial was worked by Martha Sharp to honor her sister Mary Ann Noster Sharp who died October 22, 1832.

At the top it is inscribed Forget Me Not, below that, is a sweet verse.

Weep not for her she asks no tears
Her eyes have ceased their weeping
Her cares are past - and vanished her fears
The fruits of free grace she's reaping

The center image is a fenced monument under a large weeping willow tree that is framed with a beautifully designed flowering border.

Silk on linen; 15 ½" x 12 ½" sight.
