A real charmer of a small sampler I think, found in New Hampshire, with an alphabet running A to R (clearly there was never more than that) and then this terrific monogram MAM at center, composed of tiny eyelets, and surrounded by an embroidered wreath in blue and pink and dark green with vines above and below. On linen, with wonderful border detail. 19th c. clearly, but I am not an expert in dating samplers, so not certain more precisely; my gut says maybe 1860s-70s or so.
Framed as found, with a loop at top for hanging 6 11/16” x 6 3/4” w; sampler 5 1/2” square. All in excellent condition.
