Fabric: 46 ct Pemberley by Needle and Flax Linen
Floss:  Soie d’Alger 100/3 silk, conversion to NPI, Belle Soie and DMC
Stitch Count: 271 wide x 273 high  
Model Design Size: 11.78 w x 11.87 inches h Original: 15.5 x 17.5 inches h
Stitches Used: cross stitch over two threads, Algerian eyelet in band under alphabet and upper left initials

Provenance: Given the few clues provided, a scattering of initials and a year only, it is impossible to know more about the stitcher of this lovely sampler with its motifs of delicately arching floral stems, oval leafed cartouche, paired birds and potted florals. The motifs themselves are Quaker ones found on other similarly styled samplers, with the motifs appearing here without the signature medallions often seen on Quaker  samplers. The stitcher, AB, completed her sampler in the year 1816, and marked the initials of loved ones scattered throughout, with those who had passed away in a deep brown thread.
