Gorgeous early 19th century linen and silk work sampler by Elizabeth Ann Fryer - 1800. This sampler is just stunning with extremely fine quality stitch work throughout. The linen has overall discoloration consistent with its age. The colors of the silks are good with some bleeding to the green stitch work. The edges of the linen have been cut at some point of time which has resulted in some minor fraying. Tiny holes are scattered throughout, but it doesn't take away from the beauty of this sampler. Measures 11 1/4 " x 15 without frame. Measures 14" by 18" with frame. Frame is new, made for this sampler, but is easily removable.
