Needlework sampler wrought by Mary Gantz, aged 9, 1803. Baltimore Co. Scenic needlework piece, lacking the traditional alphabet and number theme. An intricate vine and floral border surrounds a bucolic scene of rolling hills with a church, trees on the horizon, all moving downward to the ocean with a sloop in full sail. Border of trees and trellises. House flanked by two willow trees and a forest at the bottom. Included are three folders of genealogical information. Frame: H 19-1/4" W 19-3/4". Sight: H 16-1/4" W 16-3/8". Condition: Professionally framed. One area at top center with restoration. A few small "stressed" areas, but overall in fine condition. Collection of Ann Fassnacht.
