sampler size: 12½” x 12¾” • framed size: 18¼” x 18½” • sold

Rarely do we see samplers in which the house fills virtually the entire composition, from side to side. This wonderfully impressive brick manor house with a blue slate roof is set upon a lawn with a fine fence and openwork gates, and several birds fill the sky and perch on the shaped chimneys. The sampler was made by Susannah Chapman and is dated 1819; it was made in either England or America.

Worked in silk on linen, the sampler is in excellent condition. It has been conservation mounted and is in an outstanding late 19th century marquetry frame.
