Description

This sampler comes from Searsport, Maine, and is typical of so many small American marking samplers that have survived. Made of sturdy unbleached homespun linen and stitched with vegetable-dyed silk, a stylized three-sided strawberry border surrounds alphabets, numerals and an inscription, over a more ambitious floral motif.
