Stephen & Carol Huber: 17th - 19th Century Needlework

Huber - 17th century band sampler

Anonymous Band Sampler
English 17th century

This intricately stitched band sampler is a classic example of an early English sampler. The long skinny format without a surrounding boarder was popular in the 17th century. Later samplers tended to be wider and not so finely worked.

Note, the linen background material has a salvage is on all four sides, so this was never a longer sampler.

Silk on linen; 16 ½" x 7 ½" sight.
