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

Antique sampler Plymouth, MA

Antique sampler by MARIA MORTON
Plymouth, MA dated 1820

Maria was born in 1806, one of Ichabod Morton and Sarah Churchill's eight children. She married William Churchill and they had one child William M. Churchill. Maria's sampler is more lavishly developed than most Plymouth samplers but shares classic characteristics with others from this easily identifiable group. Note the flowering vine motifs enclosing the rounded corner rectangle containing ligatures, six alphabets, a verse about religion, and a stitched and painted scene with memorial monuments.

Silk and paint on linen; 17 x 12 ½ inches unframed.
