Mary Lea 1793

A beautiful border of lilies and carnations surrounds Mary’s sampler. Within is a large manor house framed on both sides by poplar and pine trees. Honey-coloured stone buildings are commonly seen in England in counties such as Gloucestershire and Yorkshire. A smug cat and an inquisitive dog stand guard along with two footmen holding candles. The sampler includes other lovely motifs, such as squirrels, butterflies and birds, such as owls, peacocks, ducks, as well as two apple trees, roses and lilies. Two angels who represent the Voice of God are contained along with the verse in a meandering rose bud cartouche.

Mary Lea finished her beautiful sampler when she was 11 years of age in 1793.

Mary Lea 1793 has been brought to you by Hands Across the Sea Samplers in collaboration with Jacqueline Morris who lovingly stitched the model. At the very core of Hands Across the Sea Samplers is a team of needleworkers who are passionate about antique samplers and being able to share those samplers with you.
