Rare and relatively early Tennessee needlework sampler, silk on linen, signed Margaret D. Robinson, “Aprile th 14″ (sic), 1827. Wide floral border enclosing three upper case alphabets rendered in four-sided stitch, eyelet stitch, and cross stitch plus a lower case alphabet in cross stitch, a row of numbers and 9 geometric dividing bands. Later molded oak frame. This sampler has been documented by the Tennessee Sampler Survey as part of the Green and Pink Group of samplers made in the area of Sumner, Smith, DeKalb, and Wilson Counties in Middle Tennessee. Provenance: The consignor purchased the sampler at the estate sale of Dorothy Wilson Robinson Clark on May 31, 1986 in McMinnville, Warren Co., TN. The sampler descended in the family of Dorothy’s first husband, Alton Robinson (born in DeKalb County). A copy of the full TSS report and genealogical information will be made available to the winning bidder. 15 -1/2″ x 17-1/4″ sight, 18″ x 20” framed. Condition: Sampler is stitched (not glued) to cardboard backing. Overall good condition with general fading and discoloration, water stain in lower right hand corner. No holes but a small possible area of very early repair on the eyelet alphabet
