ELIZABETH MANSFIELD 1792

Elizabeth Mansfield

Elizabeth Mansfield finished her sampler in England on 13th June 1792, during the reign of King George III (1760-1820: note the cushioned crown in the upper third, marked on either side by the initials G R for George Rex). The original sampler was stitched on a very fine tiffany cloth, with silk floss. This sampler is quite typical of eighteenth century English work, with the Adam and Eve scene, hunting motifs, crowns, birds, animals, flower baskets, and Bible verses. Stitches used are cross, counted thread satin, Gobelin, and eyelet.
