Silk Needlework Picture of a Shepherdess in a Landscape, probably England, early 19th century, executed in silk threads on a silk ground with painted face, (toning, minor fray l.c.), 14 x 11 1/2 in., in a later eglomise mat with oval aperture and molded wood frame.
Note: A label affixed to the reverse is inscribed "Collection of Beatrice Affleck Descendant of Thomas Affleck Philadelphia, Pa." This may refer to Scottish-born Thomas Affleck (1740-1795) who was one of pre-Revolutionary Philadelphia's most prestigious cabinetmakers.
There is a small 3/4 in frayed line at l.c. of picture outside of border.
