Jean Rattray 1761 Sampler  

This early Scottish Sampler, stitched in bright red colors, has an arcaded border found most often on Scottish samplers. Adam and Eve are standing under what appears to be an apple tree. Each are holding fruit from that tree. The tree next to Adam and Eve has the look of the Tree of Life often shown in samplers. Birds, trees, animals, and urns complete this busy sampler.

Stitch Count: 210 by 258. Size on 36 count linen: 11 2/3 by 13 1/3 inches.
