Silk on linen needlework coats of arms of the Pratt family of Connecticut, ca. 1800, having a spread-winged eagle hovering above a shield, surrounded by a rampant lion, containing three boar heads flanked by a sheaf of leaves and trailing silk embroidered flowers, above a banner labeled The Pratt Arms, initialed E.P, 17" h., 14" w. William Pratt (1609-1675) was the founder of Hartford. This coat of arms is typical of work executed at the Patten School, which is noted for raised and padded metallic embroidery. For similar examples see Rang Girlhood Embroidery, plates 236 and 237. Provenance: Stephen and Carol Huber.
