"Any holder but a Slave holder" potholder, 1882 circa

"Any holder but a Slave holder" potholder, 1882 circa

Ratings: (0)|Views: 189|Likes:
Based on the accompanying letter (GLC07731.01), created by Miss Lena, who gave the potholder to Frederick Douglass as a gift after reading his narrative. Depicts two African Americans (one male and one female) holding hands and dancing against a caramel colored background. Text is stitched above and below the dancing figures. Appears to be a form of needlepoint stitching.

Frederick Douglass thanks Lena for the potholder (GLC07731.01 ):

"Dear Miss Lena:
Please accept my best thanks for "Any Holder but a Slaveholder-" It was beautiful in a dear little girl like you to read and think kindly of my life and history- I appreciate the holder and the letter very highly -
Please receive my best wishes, for your health- Your prosperity and your happiness-
