Sampler: Embroidered Picture
Hungry chicks in a central nest are fed by enormous birds, attended by a variety of smaller birds and butterflies. A profusion of flowers with colored outlines and serrate leaves arise from spindly trunks. Below, on an abstract patchwork of paving stones, a flock of sheep is between a boy with a dog and a girl at a well in front of a house.
Made by Caroline E. Bieber, American, 1827 - 1885. Under the direction of Elizabeth B. Mason, American, 1797 - 1875.
