Rosanna Spohn
Berks County, PA dated 1848

 

Rosanna (Rosa) worked this vibrant sampler at age 13.  It is dominated by a large red house between large fruit baskets on a green lawn.  She randomly scattered the initials of her parents and siblings on her sampler and surrounded it with a graphic flowering vine border.  It retains its original mahogany veneered frame.

 

Wool on linen.
