1821 Ruth Harding Sampler

A signed and dated sampler from 1821 sewn by Ruth Harding that has the alphabet written several times, birds, flowers, and a wonderful rosebud border completely surrounding the sampler as if the sampler is in a frame.

It is probably from Pennsylvania and is a rare horizontal sampler instead of the 'normal' vertical style of sampler. It measures 18" long x 7.5" tall
The sampler is unframed and is offered with FREE DOMESTIC SHIPPING!.
My Living Room 2018

My tastes in furniture and antiques are taking me earlier into our past and my living room right now my favorite room in my home. That grain painted wardrobe that you can see in this picture will soon be replaced by an 18th century highboy that I fell in love with while up in New England a few months ago.
