This is a original needle point art with poetic expression and the identified artist name, hand made in the year 1839. The poem : " I sigh not for beauty nor languish for wealth, But grant me kind providence virtue and health, When richer than kings and more happy then they, My days shall pass sweetly and swiftly away " The needlepoint inscribed :" Jane Orme finished this work June 28 , 1839 ". The mystery : place of origin and if possible , the artist/poet. Thank you in advance .
