An Exceptional South East Pa. Hand Made Folk Art Sampler, Outstanding,gorgeous:
An Outstanding, Exceptional South East Pennsylvania ,Hand Wrought Linen Sampler, Made and Signed in 1833, By it's maker, " Elizabeth Prebble, Aged 9 Years" . There is so much going on with this Striking American Folk Art Sampler ,That it takes awhile to take it all in. The Saying is Religious in Nature, and between the Saying Paragraphs ,is Jesus, ,An Angel, Some Animals, and Birds. In the Lower Left Corner is Her School ,and a side view of her Home. In the Lower Right Corner is Elizabeth ,Hugging Her Spotted Dog ,and a front view of her Home, along with a Small Windmill, Some Ducks ,and a few Animals. There are Squirrels, Birds, hearts, Flowering Plants seen in the Center, Acorns,and 2 Gorgeous Swans. There are some tiny lose threads seen at the words " With ,and Hark, and you have to look close even to see them, not wear of any kind, just a few tiny loose threads. The rest of the Amazing Sampler is in excellent overall condition. I'm almost at a loss to imagine how a 9 Year Old Child could Make this Extroadinary Sampler ,but she Did, and it is obviously a School Sampler. It needs nothing ,and is in ready to hand condition. The outside of the Frame measures 17 1/4" x 22" ,and the sight area of the Sampler is 11 3/4" x 16 3/4". The Colors are still bright ,and there is NO Color Bleeding or Running seen. This is one of the finest Examples that you'll ever have a chance to own ,and I'm selling it with ,and only one Penny to start. It has an estimated Shop or Show value of between 2,900.00 and 3,900.00. Insured shipping in the US only is 18.85. Payment is due in 3 Days.
