For your consideration, I offer this wonderful antique sampler with a Pa Dutch motif. This folk art fancywork has a black wool background which lies host to colorful Pa Dutch Characters stitched with jewel tone threads. It is about 26" x 14" and is all hand sewn. The edges are cut and it looks like it was framed at one time. I can just imagine it in an antique long narrow frame like those used for Victorian punched paper motto samplers. You will love the folky birds, flowers and other figures featured. There are a few places that have missing stitches and the bottom may have been cut down because the white border is missing along bottom, but overall condition is very desirable!! From a South Central Pa. estate in Berks Co. Pa, where many Dutch settlers came to begin life anew in America...thus the name Pa. Dutch!!
May my treasures bring you JOY!
