Late C18th. Love it. Can't decided whether to do this one or the Mid C18th one, so may just have to do both!!!

Late 18th century. Love the colors on this one. Love all Scottish samplers Interesting that it is done in gold and red instead of the usual green and red

Jane in Wisconsin said...

This is gorgeous! Hope it's available to stitch! I'd also guess 18th century, but now I wonder if this is a trick!?!

from the web site:

A LATE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY SCOTTISH SAMPLER

And, I have to say, the double running stitches are incredible! [never mind the colors, alphabets, bargello patterns].

Those colors make we want to stitch the sampler.
