Large Chalkware Sheep

I had a wonderful response to the chalkware sheep I offered last month, but had only one, so this month I’ve made a few more.  All have been cast in antique chocolate moulds and are signed and dated on the bottom.

This large, pleasant fellow has a very light sprinkling of vintage mica flakes on his back.  He measures 7” long x 4.5”h.  Signed and dated on the bottom. Four to choose from.  Please specify A, B, C, or D when ordering.

Antique Sampler: Mary Randles

Antique silk and woolwork sampler worked by Mary Randles in 1832.  Miss Randles filled the top of her joyful sampler with large flowering plants, two blue-headed owls (love these!), her name and date.  In the middle, flanked by angles, are verses from Isaiah and Psalms. 



At the bottom, Miss Randles filled her sampler with a charming scene including a red house with smoking chimney, a lady in a green dress standing in the open doorway, deer, fruits, red squirrels, flying birds, and large florals. A meandering strawberry border surrounds the whole. 


The linen is a bit darker in the center and there are tack holes around the edges where it was once attached to a wood frame.  There is some thread loss to the border, most notably at the bottom. Silks were used to complete the owls, angels’ faces, and to partially complete the deer. A very pleasing sampler that measures 17.5”w x 24”h and has not been reproduced.

Antique Sampler: Alice Peck

A sweet marking sampler stitched by Alice Peck in 1871.  Worked with brown cotton threads on linen using cross, Algerian eyelet, and four-sided stitches.  In addition to lovely examples of alphabets and numbers, Miss Peck stitched her name, Brandeston Hall School, Aged Ten Years, January 29th, 1871, and Suffolk.  Good condition aside from a small hole near the lowercase “w”.  A really wonderful marking sampler that has not been reproduced.  It measures 14.25”w x 10.25”h.
