I really like this school girl sampler. It demonstrates a very precise and accurate sample of her work. I would date to first quarter of the 19th century; worked by "Mary Catt Aged 13 Years". Example with flowers, prayer, and poem and surrounded by geometric border. Additionally in a period wood-grain painted frame (original I believe). Very good condition with very minor losses to bottom of piece and small hole near the letter 'G'. Overall approximately 13 x 12 inches.
