Pair Needle Work Pictures, Ca. 1830

A pair of allegorical subject needlework pictures on silk with water colors. They are bright and fresh as the day they were done. One may portray Rebecca at the well. It is very uncommon to find examples in this condition. The gilded frames appear to be 19th century.
