This is a wonderful antique Dutch cross stitch sampler, showing flower vases, birds and grapes. It is stitched with multi-colored silk thread on linen cloth. The sampler dates from circa 1800.
It measures approximately 16 x 11 3/4 inches or 40.5 x 30 cm. The needlework is in good condition, considering the age of the sampler. There is some minor run of color, please see photos no. 3 (the green of the flower vase on the right) and 6 (the red flower).
The cloth is a bit worn in some places and has some small spots on it. If you have any questions or would like more or larger pictures, please don't hesitate to contact me. I always try to respond to e-mails within 24 hours on weekdays. To add my store to your favorites.
