Brilliant Scottish sampler with traditional green and red alphabets. Pink, magenta, and a sparkle of sunny yellow boldly embrace the design. Distinctive Scottish design elements are the arcaded stylized pansy band, peacocks, crowned family initials, rose-trees and a finely worked three-story mansion with a blue slate roof. Some of the windows remain open, similar to a group of samplers from Virginia in the United States. A sweet strawberry vine surrounds this delightful sampler. Stitch count 291 x 220.
