Secure Payments By
This charming sampler was made by Mary Gibson, Aged 13, in 1825. It is silk on a linen backing. It shows Adam and Eve and the Tree of Knowledge, and is accompanied by a passage from the King James Bible, accurately embroidered, being Genesis Chapter 3 verses 3 to 6. Around this are a number of motifs including two deer, various flowers and tree, a strawberry border, and a cartouche with two angels holding a crown, over the verse "Be thou faithfull unto Death and I will give thee a crown of Life" (Revelation 2:10). The sampler is beautifully set off by its original frame of mahogany veneer with ebony and satinwood inlay. The frame had a backing of an orignal 1825 document when we acquired it. It has had old repairs and we have repaired it a bit more to make it stable, but it is still in antique condition.
