For sale is a very sweet antique early to mid 19th century English silk on linen sampler that I purchased from a sale in Ohio. It depicts a large urn of flowers with 2 different birds, possibly parrots at the top, and 2 matching birds at the bottom. The border is a traditional strawberry vine pattern. The matted sampler is placed in a deep set frame made with square nails, and with what appears to be its original glass. The sampler itself is quite small in size, measuring about 6" x 6", and the framed piece is about 13 1/2" x 11 1/2" x 1 3/4". Sight measurements are 9 3/4" x 7 3/4". The sampler is in very nice antique condition, with just a couple of pale dark spots between the urn and the bird on the right. The frame shows some expected minor age related wear. Please look carefully at the pictures as they are an important part of the description, and be sure to ask any questions. What a wonderful addition to your cottage decor!
