This is a superb Georgian period framed embroidery on silk featuring five children beneath a tree, entitled Children Dividing Fruit. It is dated Jan. 1801 and published in London by R. Ackermann. The silk embroideries of the time were first hand painted. The name of the painter is marked on the left lower corner (Painted by R. Ward) and on the right lower corner is the name of the engraver (W. Nutter). The wooden frame and glass that also bears the title in gold letters are original. Overall measurements, including the frame, are 19" x 16 1/2". Condition is very good considering it is over 200 years old. There are two splits to the silk at the top right corner and two other tiny splits, one on the hair of one child and the other on the face of another child.
