Sampler or Antique Sampler:
Usually these terms refer to early needlework accomplishments stitched, or wrought by young students in schools with silk thread on a linen background. They can run the gamut in quality, complexity, and price. The first attempt at making a sampler by a young girl, or far less frequently a young boy, was usually a very simple sampler with only alphabets, numbers, name, date, and sometimes a small amount of decorative stitching. These are commonly referred to as marking samplers. As the students became more capable, the complexity of the sampler usually increased accordingly. At the very top are some masterpieces sporting a wide variety of difficult stitches and subtle color changes intricately and graphically executed to create a needlework sampler that was framed, proudly displayed and cherished. Now those same samplers are highly sought after and cherished by knowledgeable antique needlework collectors.
