Fanny M. Forister 1828

This antique is SOLD. Purchase sampler kit, graph or finished model (if available) for yourself.

This sampler is very likely from Massachusetts and is framed in what could be the original frame (not pictured). It features two elegant houses at the top, three alphabets, a sawtooth satin stitched four sided border, and floral borders on the right and left. The verse is:

Would you be wise
Each moment prize

Stitches used include satin, counted satin, cross, stem filling and back stitch. It is in very good condition with only minor fading. It measures 17″ x 18″ and has been mounted over acid free material.
