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

Kutztown, PA needlework sampler
Elizabeth Mason's School c.1844

A young girl probably in her mid teens worked this needlework sampler while attending Elizabeth Mason's school in Kutztown, PA. The sampler is dominated by a large pink house in the center with 2 sheep in the lawn, all surrounded with a flowering border. It retains its original frame and glass. Note: Attached to the back for preservation is a 1844 Philadelphia newspaper, which was the original backing paper before the sampler was conservation mounted.

Wool on linen; 19 ¾" x 23" framed.
