A traditional needlework sampler was hand stitched on linen in the early 1800's, signed "Ann Simpson, Aged 12." There is significant fading on this American antique textile. Initials ending in "S" are presumably of her family.
The linen is hand woven and there are bird and tree motifs. The maple frame is modern.
Overall size is 17" x 22" and 1" deep.
