A farmhouse WITH a light house PLUS a train station AND a horse and buggy—I love how this vintage needlepoint is pretty much everything but the kitchen sink, and very New England coast. The little details, too, are pretty great, from the woman gathering laundry off the line, to the chickens pecking away on the green next to the train tracks, to the leafy trees, to men shooting the breeze next to the buggy filled with bags of coal (?), and American flag waving high. It makes me think of an illustration in a French or Spanish text book used for teaching vocabulary, so maybe ideally suited for hanging in a kid’s bedroom or playroom!
The piece measures 15x19” including wood frame (no glass), and is in very good vintage condition.
