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

Wethersfield, CT needlework sampler worked by a 14 year old in c.1818
Note the "one horse roadster", that's really is what they called it, on the bridge and the early steam powered boat.

Wethersfield, Connecticut c.1818
Antique needlework sampler

Wethersfield, CT samplers are often embellished with townscapes, and flowered garlands suspended by an eagle and bowknots surrounding a family record. This stunning example is exceptional with the large beautifully designed and executed scenic panel at the bottom complete with a "one house roadster" on the bridge, that's really what they called it, and a very early steam powered boat. The original frame is highly developed and it retains its wonderful original glass.

Celia Talcott (1804-1886) was the daughter of Wethersfield druggist William Talcott and Amelia Hanmer. She married Henry Robbins.
