Lovely pair of early 20th century samplers of rustic scenes based on texts from the bible "The Lord is My Light", and "The Lord is My Shepherd". The samplers are slightly primitive, they are hand stitched over a transfer (you can just see remains of the pattern at the top of one of the pictures), the colors are still bright and vibrant. The cream wooden frames are later, they look fine though they are slightly too wide for the embroidery. There is slight age staining to the samplers, thought this is not unduly distracting, it rather serves to give them an antique look. Very nice hung together, they display beautifully.
