Samplers like this one demonstrated a young girl's ability to darn various fabrics. Each cross shows her versatility at this task, covering an actual hole that the instructor would have made and asking the student to mend each one in a different weave.
What makes this 1802 example stand out from the crowd is the elaborate basket of flowers in the center, all worked in pattern darning stitches.
In excellent condition, measuring 15" square.
