G482 Large, beautifully mortised and tenon framed Sampler identified as being wrought by “Rachel Lorah June 11th 1844”. This exquisite work includes five repeating alphabets, the numbers 1 - 11, and various sets of initials with each row is separated (and overall bordered) by bands of hand wrought geometrical shapes. The focal point includes a Remembrance verse that is accented with wonderful urns of flowers, individual flowers, and geometrical shapes. The Sampler is linen and wool, and bears very minor losses throughout that are indicative of age. Colors remain vibrant throughout. Wooden frame contains minimal damage, which is also indicative of age. The Remembrance verse fully reads: “This work in hand my friends may have When I am in my silent grave That they may read and look upon And think of me when I am gone.” NOTE: Familial research of the names and initials within the sampler indicate a probable Pennsylvania provenance. Frame measures 25” tall x 26 1/2” wide. Sampler portion measures 18 3/4” tall x 20 1/8” wide.
