Wonderful family record / chronology stitched by a daughter for her parents. It is signed Marguerite and dated 1897.
She lists 10 names and their date birth (from 1811 to 1887).
Marguerite Baccot is the last name and it seems to be her work. She was 10 years old when she stitched that beautiful piece.
It says in French 'Parents veuillez agréer ce précieux souvenir, doux fruit bien léger, charmant mon loisir' which translates as 'Parents, please accept this precious memory, sweet and light fruit, charming my leisure'

The whole canvas has discoloured and is stained as can be seen in the photographs.
It was removed from its frame and unpinned so the edges are damaged.
Ready to be framed in a new home!

Approx. 70 x 56.4 cm/ 27.55 x 22 inches
