Margaret Gregory's Needlework Sampler, 1850
Item Details
Description
Margaret Gregory's needlework sampler, dated 1850, with a strawberry border. Margaret lived in Portsmouth, NH and was born c. 1834 (sampler states that she was 16 when she stitched it). In addition to a nice script alphabet, Margaret included a short verse and a wonderful riverfront view of the Strawbery Banke section of Portsmouth (hence the strawberry border!). The sampler measures 15 ¾” x 16 ½” (sight) and is framed in a nice contemporary frame (19” x 19 ¾”). The verse Margaret chose to include reads as follows: Not a cloud does arise to darken the skies Or hide for a moment my Lord from my eyes. My Jesus to know and feel his blood flow. ‘Tis life everlasting; ‘tis heaven below (Margaret seems to have combined 2 separate Methodist verses into a single inspirational poem.) The colors on Margaret’s sampler are very vibrant, especially the reds! The linen backing is clean and free of holes, tears and stains. There is some very minor stitch loss, in single letters in the verse, and the capital "A” at the top, left. The river scene and the strawberry border are complete.
