American Samplers

Ann Irvin, age 39

1849

American

Description:

This sampler has the wonderful charm of a young schoolgirl sampler, with a house, little birds, dogs and many flowers; however, Ann Irvin was 39 years old when she worked her needle. It is quite rare to find a sampler made by a woman of such a late age in life, as this was a skill taught to young girls in schools.

Size (W x H): 19 3/4 x 20 1/4 inches

Stitches: Cross

Media: Wool on linen

Genealogy:

This sampler was accompanied by a note from the original backboard, written by Ann's granddaughter Alice Irvin Grange (Photo #8). The stitching date of this sampler was determined from knowing that Ann died in 1891 at the age of 81.
