sampler size: 12¼ x 12¼ • framed size: 16" x 16" • sold

Sophia Green’s verse and motif sampler includes wonderful trees, potted plants, and little birds and dogs all arranged in classic mirror-image composition. The four-line verse is an uplifting religious entreaty that is found on other samplers. A narrow inner geometric framework is surrounded by a strong and handsome border formed of a deep green vine with stylized flowers and leaves with four flying insects in the corners. 

The sampler was worked in silk on wool and is in excellent condition with some very slight darkening to the wool. It has been conservation mounted and is in a molded maple frame with a gilt liner.
