Old silverplate utensils make wonderful plant markers, especially when they are as old and tarnished as these. Please use caution if placing markers in the ground ~ don’t use where children or pets (or you) might step on them!  Don’t have a garden?  Display them in an old canning jar or lay them on an early breadboard with a bundle of dried herbs!  

Please specify Set A, B, C, D, E or F when ordering and include your zip code.  Most orders can be shipped via First Class mail. 
Vintage Silverplate Plant Markers ~ $24.00 each set + shipping in the U.S.

Antique Redwork Sampler: Martha Pellow 1878



Small late 19th century redwork school sampler stitched by 12 year old Martha Pellow in 1878.  This sweet sampler is worked in two shades of red cotton threads on linen.  Miss Pellow alternated her rows of letters with a variety of horizontal bands.  She worked her name, age, year, and “RMA Girls School” at the bottom.  There are two tiny inverted triangle motifs stitched in cream thread on either side of her age/year.  There are no losses to the linen or threads.  There is a bit of very old dried glue along the top and bottom hemlines.  This sampler measures 8”w x 8.75”h.  (Forgive me for flying the flags backward in the photo!  I didn't even realize I had them laid out improperly until I posted the pics!)

Antique Sampler: Betsy Thomas 1798
 


The perfect sampler for the primitive and early sampler lover!  Betsy Thomas finished her work in 1798 at the age of 13.  Completed in cross and satin stitch browns, blacks, and the prettiest shade of blue.  The sampler was folded over in the center many years ago to hide a hole.  The sampler is stitched to a cotton backing the same color as the linen which effectively hides a hole in the lower right corner.

Framed under glass in a wonderful frame (possibly cherry) with all four corner blocks intact.  Paper dust cover on back.  Sawtooth hanger.  Just a wonderful, early sampler that has not been reproduced!!

Overall measurements (including frame): 12.25”h x 10.25”w.
Betsy Thomas Sampler ~ $395.00 includes shipping in the U.S.
