A fine silk embroidery sampler by Mary Ann Thomas. Circa 1797, New England. Wrought with a central flowering shrub in an urn amongst flying butterflies and two feeding birds, all within a delicate scrolling border of flowering vinery on a beige ground. Embroidered beneath the urn is "Mary.Ann.Thomas" over the date "1797". Mounted beneath a black and gold eglomise glass panel, housed in a gold gilt frame. SIZE: Sight: 16" x 14". Overall: 25-1/2" x 22-1/2". Provenance is from a Corea, ME collection. CONDITION: The silkwork with overall toning of a light tea color. Embroidery generally good, retaining true colors. Slightly faded. 18th century textiles are increasingly difficult to locate in fine condition. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
