Sampler from Perth, Scotland
This sampler was done by Marianne Kennedy in 1846. There is a label on the back indicating that it was framed by “R Stewart and Sons, Fine Art Dealers, Artists’ colourmen and Frame Makers. 19 St John St and 16 Princess St, Perth.” It is a wonderful example of sampler stitching showing letters, a complex border and interesting figures. Note Marianne’s use of silk threads to highlight the trees at the bottom.
