Ann Peartree-1739

Ann Peartree-1739Ann's tent stitch picture possibly depicts the personification of Charity or Spring. It is the earliest dated and signed embroidered picture made in Boston. Susan Condy placed advertisements that she copied and sold designs from London for tent stitch pictures. She also offered patterns for a wide range of needlework goods such as pocketbooks, fire screens, housewives, etc. Ann's design maybe from a Condy source copied from a design from London. Ann's earlier sampler, dated 1734 is in the style of the Adam and Eve samplers attributed to Susan Condy. see p. 68-69 and p 130 in, "Woman's Work, Embroidery in Colonial Boston" by Pam Parmal. From the collection of the Museum of Fine Art, Boston, access. no. 59.22.
