This is a Vintage Framed Crewel Embroidery Needlework Sampler on Linen. The frame measures 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" square. The lines are done in green threads. The various flowers are down in blue, pink, organ, and yellow shades. Very nice vintage sampler. It is as found at an estate sale. There is some glare on the glass when the picture was taken. Condition is great. The linen does have the aged look to it. Lovely as a wall hanging or a pillow.
