A rare silk thread on linen sampler from Sag Harbor, Long Island by Lucretia Briggs Fordham, aged 10 years, dated July 10, 1834. The scene has an interesting landscape design of flowers, trees, and a beehive with swarming bees.
The field with a poem over the maker's name within a wreath. Above the landscape an alphabet. All within a large strawberry border. Mounted within a narrow wood frame. Sampler measures 15 3/4 inches high by 17 1/4 inches wide.
Good vibrant color and in very good condition. This sampler comes with a brief geneology.
