Ann Dent 1799
ANN DENT HER SAMPLER FINISHED DECEMBER 23 1806 BORN APRIL THE 9 1799
That’s as much as I can say about Ann Dent’s sampler which I believe was made in New England on homespun linen with very fine wool threads. It’s an alphabet sampler with a few geometric pattern bands. Stitches used are cross, eyelet and counted satin. It has been professionally conserved and put into a modern frame. Excellent color and condition, minor losses, but when you are 215 years old you never look fresh. 10-1/2″ x 12-1/4″.
