A lovely little sampler in browns, greens and a little blue, all colors age faded. Alphabet in different styles, upper and lower case, big and smaller `font`. Not a lot of embellishment, just two trees in the bottom corners and cross stitched boarder all around. A verse concludes the work : `Sincerity and truth are foundation of all virtue` Signed and dated: Delilah Henderson Aged 11 years 1853. In an old wooden frame mounted on suede back. The Sampler itself is 17.25 x 8 inches, the frame is 26x16. A very sweet item. I have not removed it to inspect it: overall fading and one tear noted in bottom right corner as seen.
