Two charming little samplers, which are the same width, worked using similar colours, styles and canvas, with the same floral motif in both, so I believe that these are companion pieces - so rare to find!  One has an alphabet in lower and upper case and both have charming pictures including birds, butterflies, dogs, squirrels, trees and flowers.  Sadly, neither is signed or dated.

Condition is good and sturdy and the colours are still bright.

Cream open weave canvas worked in green, brown, beige, yellow, blue and cream threads.

19th century.

Alphabet sampler measures approx. 26cm x 18.5cm (10 1/4" x 7 1/4").

Picture sampler measures approx. 26cm x 16.5cm (10 1/4" x 6 1/2").
