We are so pleased and proud to present this cross stitch and embroidery sampler for the Colonial enthusiast! Simply called "Cooper-Hewitt", this piece is adapted from the 1773 sampler of 16 year old Mary Batchelder, which is now housed in their museum collection.
Just like the original, this reproduction sampler features a stylized floral border on three sides. In the upper third are three sets of alphabets and a set of numerals, separated by geometric and floral borders. In the center, three stylized flowers from the original was retained. The Original Verse Read:
"Mary Batchelder Was Born June The 13th 1757 Wrought this Sampler 1773
While God does Spare for Death Prepare"
.
This verse part of the original sampler has been removed so that you, as the stitchery artist, can personalize for yourself.
.
Similar to the Chase Williamsburg sampler, the Cooper Hewitt reproduction is worked in basic embroidery stitches along the bottom third, which showcases a centralized large two-handled vase of flowers with a bird and an insect on each side and flowers scattered in the foreground.
