Huge Fine Antique sampler dated 1837. Elaborate figural needlework sampler by Mary Ann Cole, 1837. Abundant classical folk motifs: trees, bell flowers, birds, baskets, strawberry border. Beautiful vivid colors with strong reds.
The figures are carefully set to fill space; the composition is beautifully balanced and artistic. Very fine work with tiny stitches. Quite a dazzling and showy piece.
There are a couple small darned spots-- quite innocuous (photo 5). You have to look very carefully to find them. No missing stitches; linen is excellent and firm. Professionally mounted-- hand stitched to an acid free board.ATTENTION: Please Examine the entire ad + photos carefully and ask all questions up front.
