Emma Wilson’s sampler presents excellence in her letter-perfect poem and her gracefully designed and executed flower and bud on vine border. The verse is one not commonly found on samplers, although its theme was a popular one; it exhorts the reader to, “be sincere upright and true, at home at school and else where too.”

Worked in silk on wool, the sampler is in excellent condition and has been conservation mounted into its fine original frame.
