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

band sampler 1685 - Huber

Margaret Cobb
English band sampler dated 1685

This rare and important band sampler has many surprises upon close inspection. There are bands of cut and drawn work some creating images others, geometric patterns, white-work bands, two stags, two birds, some other little folksy animals, scattered initials, numerous other intricately stitched bands.

Being signed and dated, and stitched in the classic long format of the period add to its appeal.

Silk on linen: 28" x 8" sight.
