Stephen & Carol Huber: 17th - 19th Century Needlework

New England, sampler from Huber

Anonymous Sampler
New England c.1820

This is a charming and interesting sampler features a central boating scene apparently at the mouth of a cove or river. The arched columns, oval framed scenes, and solidly stitched checkered board bottom panel combine to make this a highly developed pleasing schoolgirl sampler.

The maker did not sign or date it and its overall design is unique. Similar design elements and stitching techniques can be found on samplers along the coastline from Rhode Island to Maine, but most likely this is from the Boston area..

Silk on linen; 14 ½" x 11 ½" sight. Period gold 2 ½" frame is probably not original.
