Sampler size: 12¼” x 12½” • Framed size: 14½” x 15 • sold

A handsome and carefully stitched English sampler, this exhibits a traditional, highly symmetrical composition filled with many assorted motifs, both large and small, and a wonderful little brick cottage on a front lawn. Charlotte, only 8 years old, was clearly a fine needleworker and stitched all of it, including this highly popular verse, with great skill.

Worked in silk on wool, the sampler is in excellent condition. It has been conservation mounted into a molded mahogany frame.
