ABCD 1817 Miniature Sampler - Silk Floss Kit
An historical design from The Scarlet Letter Sampler Collection.
This sampler might be of Scottish origin, and appears to be a rehearsal for a more ambitious piece. It is stitched entirely in cross stitch on 30-count unbleached linen (The Scarlet Letter's exclusive weave).
Origin and date: Scotland, 1817
Linen count/finished size: 30 count, 2-3/4"x3-1/4". Kit contains fabric, silk thread, needle and instructions.
Stitches: Entirely cross stitch in six shades of silk
