ELIZABETH DUNN AGED 9 YEARS, circa 1830

Elizabeth Dunn

Possibly Scottish, this adorable little sampler in very good condition features the phrase FEAR GOD, worked in eyelet stitch as its main focal point. Stitched on linen with fine wool threads, it is executed in shades of green, gold, red, rose, beige and brown with four rows of alphabets above the foreboding verse, with her attribution in a cartouche at the bottom. There is minor thread loss in the letter "D" of GOD and the pattern band above that, as well as some floss loss in the lower right border. The sampler has been properly mounted over linen in a newer frame with spacers, and measures 10-1/2" x 10-1/2" (sight), larger with the frame.
