Stitched in Silk & Hair

Dated 1827


These are a delightful miniature pair of needleworks stitched using silk thread in monochrome shades supplemented with golden coloured hair. One shows a farmhouse in a landscape with the farmer herding his sheep in the foreground; the second one shows farm buildings, one with an attached tower and  with a ladder propped against it.

The needleworks are on a silk ground tacked to a pine board. They are both indistinctly inscribed on the reverse – ‘Miss Panting / Martha Pa—– / 1827’.

Excellent condition and housed in what appear to be the original giltwood frames.
