JANE HOWELL 1835

Jane Howell

An English sampler with a four sided multifloral border centering a pyramidal alphabet and numerals, horizontal pattern bands, a verse and scene executed in petit point, featuring a house flanked by trees and oversized flowers. Stitched in silk on fine linen, the color is very good, but the condition is fair with considerable damage to the lower border. Stitches used are cross, petit point, and counted satin. The verse:

Tis religion that can give
Sweetest Pleasures while we live
Tis religion must supply
Solid comfort when we die
After death its joys will be
Lasting as eternity
Be the living God my friend
Then my bliss shall never end,

Unframed, 13" x 16-1/2"

The Scarlet Letter will introduce this as a new chart in the autumn of 2018, after which the antique will be available for sale.
