Red & Blue Darning Sampler - SOLD
- Product Code: SA-RBDRN
- Availability: Sold
I love the blue used in this antique darning sampler! In addition to four darning patterns and cross stitch, there are Smyrna, long-armed cross stitch, and pulled threadwork. There are some bluish/gray stains on one side and a rust-colored stain at the top right. The cotton threads remain intact. The top is simply hemmed and the sides are hemmed with twill tape. The bottom is selvage. It measures 14.5’w x 11”h. Although undated, this sampler likely dates to the early 1900s.
