Mid-19th century sampler worked in wool on coarse linen. Though undated, the style of stitch work would indicate this piece dates to circa 1845 or slightly later. Worked by an anonymous hand, this sampler is completely charming with motifs of spring including a squirrel, may basket, tulips, florals and several bands in a unique delightful pattern.
