This beautiful sampler is from the Winterthur collection. Mary Partridge's sampler dated 1717, is of British origin and similar to the English band samplers from a century earlier. The fact that it has fewer bands and is shorter and wider in format tells us it dates to the early 1700's.

The original sampler was worked on a wool ground but the reproduction is on linen. The colors in the reproduction have been matched to the back.

The stitches used are cross, cross over one, Montenegrin, double running stitch, satin stitch, eyelet, double running, back stitch (closed herringbone), and diagonal double running back stitch.

H. F. du Pont had a passion for textiles and needlework; as a result, he acquired more than 700 pieces of American needlework for what is now the Winterthur Museum collection.
