ELIZABETH TICE (1810)
Elizabeth's delightful sampler is of British origin. Samplers and needlework pictures of a lady fishing a pastoral setting were a well known subject in the late 1700's and early 1800's and as a group became known as "the fishing lady". Our sampler has the lady seated in a flowering arbour and she's caught a fish from the pond at her feet. She's surrounded by various animals, birds and insects. A tent is to her right and a bird in a cage hangs from a branch. A verse on creation is enclosed in a lovely border. Worked in mainly cross stitch with some free hand stitching for the leaves.
