� This sampler could be British or Connecticut or a British influenced American sampler and appears to be silk on linen. There is a clear date for Mary's work and a wonderful verse. Size is approximately 18 by 12.5 for sampler itself plus 1 3/4 inch black painted frame, cove at top. It was found in Philadelphia if that helps.

Connecticut samplers often had a house at the bottom and similar borders. British samplers would have similar motifs. I am not an expert so please decide yourself.

The black painted cove top frame appears original and untouched.

Condition is very good with a small lower left loss as seen, some toning and fading, but overall good color. Photos done outdoors except for last close up of frame.
