Elegant Antique Monogrammed Linen Darning and Mending Sampler

Regular price $100.00

I love a mending sampler, and a darning sampler, and what a crisp, elegant one this one is, white linen, late-ish 19th c., Dutch I believe. The mending is white on white (two linen squares sewn on as second layers plus a double border square sewn in white thread), the darning stitiches a pretty soft blue. Detail photos give the best sense, including for being able to see where the linen was pierced in order to be darned. To my eye minimalist perfection.

15 3/16" x 15 1/4". Freshly laundered and ironed and in very good condition.
