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

Huber - Franklin County, PA

Elizabeth Sellers
Needlework Sampler
Franklin County, PA dated 1845

This pleasing Pennsylvania German sampler was worked by Elizabeth Sellers in 1845. She listed the names of ten family members and that information leads us to identify her as the daughter of Samual Seller, a wheelwright from Franklin County in southern Pennsylvania.

Elizabeth carefully worked her large cross stitched alphabet at top with two lovely carnation sprays, some geometric motifs, a flower pot and her initials fully worked at the base. The border is unusual, with stylized carnations along the sides.
This sampler is in excellent condition and has been conservation mounted into a cherry corner block frame.

Silk on linen; 20"x 21 ½" framed.
