Ann Wilkinson 1834, Antique Reproduction
$22 + shipping
Provenance: Although nothing could be found relating to young Ann Wilkinson,
her surname is of Anglo-Saxon origins which can be found in the Celtic countries
of Ireland, Scotland and Wales since medieval times. The rich bold colors, placement of
repetitive motifs in a well balanced, symmetrical order and the thick undulating bands
all suggest this to be a Scottish sampler. The original measures 15 inches x 18 inches stitched
on 34 x 30 count unevenweave linen. The model was stitched in the muted colors due to the passage of time though many are still vibrant on this gorgeous sampler even after the passage of nearly 185 years.
"Great God: thy hand to diff'rent ranks
Hath diff'rent tasks assign'd;
'Tis mine to tread the lower path,
And bear an humble mind.
"Tis mine with industry and care
"To earn my daily food,
I am not likely to be great,
But, oh: may I be good.
Ann Wilkinson 1834"
