Textile Item: Antique Darning Sampler
Inventory #: 5747
Description: This silk on linen sampler is probably Dutch. It not only has
five areas of beautiful crossed darning, it also has a border of six needlework
flowers. In the upper corners formed by the center cross are two crowns with
the initials R H and M A M, with the date 1815 in the lower corners.
Camera glare and shadows inaccurately make the sampler appear
damaged, although there are some splits in the light backing.
Dimension: Framed 19-3/4” square
