MARY ANN ORAM CIRCA 1820 SAMPLER

Mary Oram Reproduction Sampler Mary Oram Original Sampler

The finely stitched antique sampler from which we reproduced this was probably made in England around 1820. It features a verse commonly stitched on early 19th century samplers, both in England and America. Depicted in the lower register is a scene with a church atop a hill (with a gigantic pterodactyl on the roof), and a brick cottage with a fenced garden. (An interesting historic agricultural aside: at that time, livestock were generally left free to roam, hence the necessity to fence in the vegetable, herb, and f lower gardens, to keep hungry beasts out.)
