Rarely do we see samplers with such a concentration of folksy motifs. This example has one of the most charming
renderings of Adam & Eve known. It appears Eve is delightfully overwhelmed as Adam offers her a bouquet of
flowers. It is further enhanced with a leaping stag, nineteen birds, eight folksy animals, a huge squirrel, and
a dog sitting in a chair. At the top is a very decorative swag border supported by three winged angles. The sampler
is framed with a flowering vine border.
