1892 Mourning Needlework Sampler

1892 Mourning Needlework SamplerMuch like the piece from 1886, this piece from 1892 is far superior and shows a very experienced hand in the layout and construction. Its balance with the frame is exceptional and the positioning of text is superb.

This follows the form more common with the latter half of the 19th century in its simple, bold, formal style, though is no less more attractive.
