Margret Lawrance 1823 Scottish Sampler
Characteristically ornate illuminated alphabets are featured on this classic Scottish sampler. Other stylistic elements indicating its origin include the peacock with seven tail feathers and three rows of initials of the maker’s family. The illuminated alphabets on this particular sampler are particularly exaggerated and very stylistic. Stitches used in the sampler are back, cross and eyelet. On 35 count linen the sampler will measure approximately 12-1/4″ x 16-1/2″. The project is recommended for any skill level.
