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

American sampler dated 1792 from Huber

Betsey Morton
Antique needlework sampler
Probably Massachusetts dated 1782

Inscribed: Betsey Morton her Sampler aged 11years 1782. Betsey worked this sampler incorporating a very developed flowering vine border and several complex bands separating elements of the sampler. The elements are the alphabet, numbers, verses, the inscription, and the motif at the bottom.

Genealogical research has so far been inconclusive in confidently identifying the Betsey Morton that worked this beautiful classic 18th century American sampler.

Silk on linen; 18" x 12 ¼" sight.
