Ann Thompson

A rare and unusual oval sampler in excellent condition, featuring Adam and Eve beside the tree of life with a black serpent. At the top is the crucified Christ executed in stem stitch . The verses are:

Behold the Saviour of mankind
Nailed to the shameful tree
How vast the love that him inclind
To bleed and die for me

faith full unto death
and I will give the
a crown of life

For As By One Mans Disobedience Many
Were made Sinners so by The obedience
One shall Many Be made Righteous
Ann Thompson her work Aged
9 years A.D. 1803

The sampler has been conservation mounted, and measures 15-1/2" x 18-1/2". Measurements include the frame. Stitches used are cross, counted satin, stem filling, and petit point. This will be available as a chart/kit in October 2013.
