RARE RICHMOND, VIRGINIA FOLK ART NEEDLEWORK PICTURE

Lot 0227 Details

Description
RARE RICHMOND, VIRGINIA FOLK ART NEEDLEWORK PICTURE, wool, an enigmatic work depicting the Old Stone House, currently the Poe Museum, on Main Street just below Church Hill in Richmond, Virginia. Inscriptions include "Gen. G. Washingtons / Head - Quarters 1781" at top and "Old Stone House / Main St. / Richmond, VA / M. E. M. / 1892" at bottom. Circa 1892. 20 1/2" x 18" object, 29" x 33 1/2" OA.

Provenance: Collection of the late John and Lil Palmer, Purcellville, VA.
Purchased from the Richmond "Big Flea" from David Delgado, Richmond, VA, 1995.

Catalogue Note: This needlework picture depicts an old Richmond landmark that has had many interesting associations over time. In the late 19th century and into the first part of the 20th century, an entrepreneurial dealer of antiquities set up shop in the building and began touting its historical association with Washington as a tourist ploy. The ruse worked, and erroneous historical associations with the building persist to this day. At present the building serves as the headquarters of the Poe Museum in Richmond.
Condition
Good condition overall, with some fading, staining, and minor areas of deterioration at edges.
