This is an accurate reproduction of a Tappan N.Y./N.J. area sampler held in a private collection.
Queenstown Sampler Designs tells us: "Maria Elizabeth Blauvelt created a charming sampler. There is a snowy goose, little blossoms, upper case alphabets, and it is encased in a discreet cable border. It is an admirable marking or learning sampler. Maria signed her sampler: “Maria Elizabeth Blauvelt made this sampler in the ninth year of her age”. The sampler descended with a family note documenting that Maria was born in 1830 and worked this in 1839. A history is included in the chart pack."
The stitch count is 150h x 90w.
The model was stitched on 28 count Amber/Toasted Almond linen from Permin/Wichelt using silk floss from Needlepoint Silk.
