FRAMED SAMPLER

Item Description:

FRAMED SAMPLER - "Advice to Young Ladies", signed Sarah Farnsworth, Washington (Maine), silk on linen, with floral border on top and sides. The poem reads (as spelt): "Ye lovely fair whose Gentle minds incline/ To polish manners and the heart refine/ With admiration in your works are read/ The various textures of the twining thread/ But turn to higher nobler tasks your care/ Tis wisdom virtue makes you truly fair/ Then let the hands that boast unrivalled skill/ Be well employed your duty to fulfil/ Let charity with sweet attractive mien/ Dwell in your looks and in your works be seen/ With serrius modesty may well combine/ And lend its charm to grace the flowing line/ Improve the talents so profusely given/ Exalt the gifts of nature and of heaven." In stick frame, under glass, OS: 20" x 19 1/2", SS: 18" x 17 1/2". Very light staining at bottom. Sarah Farnsworth lived 1818-1870, so this dates to 1831.
