Amanda Jewel 1816 Sampler

A sampler from The Scarlet Letter historical sampler collection.

This sampler was made in St. Albans, Vermont.

A naturalistic four-sided floral border surrounds a central reserve with alphabets and a pictorial scene. The house is so distinctive that it is probably a depiction of Amanda's own home. Made under the tutelage of B. Samson, the sampler makes use of a variety of stitches listed below. The brickwork of the house is stitched with a combination of regular and narrow (horizontal) cross stitches, resulting in an interesting visual effect.
