~~ An Antique Reproduction ~~

Worked entirely in cross stitch, Blanche Wagstaff’s redwork sampler is orderly and pleasing with rows of letters and numbers separated by a variety of decorative horizontal bands.  But it is the bottom, simply and charmingly stitched with floral and vine motifs, a crown, her name and Xmas 1877, that draws the eye.  One wonders if Blanche presented this sampler to her parents on Christmas as a token of her affection and evidence of her diligent needlework...

Original sampler shown in second photo.

Stitch count: 135w x 200h
