Two Unfinished Samplers

Two Unfinished Samplers

 and a Wooden Dowel, 1840

Mouse over image to enlarge


A pair of samplers, greatly unfinished and obviously by the same maker, these remained together rolled around their hand-carved wooden dowel. The one that is a bit more finished is dated 1840 and they’re most likely American. Wonderful study examples. 

Silk on linen, excellent condition. The samplers measure 15” x 13½” each. The dowel is 14“ long.
