About this title

Synopsis:

If you weren't able to attend the auction at Sotheby's here's the next best thing! In fact, Sotheby's has the book on their site as reference for the sale. Though most of the samplers sold well, one sold for $1, 070, 500! All the samplers from this exceptional collection are beautifully photographed and documented, making this an important addition to any collector's or needleworker's library. The text explains the history and development of the art by State, followed by examples from that area. Naturally there are many mourning samplers and other embroideries as this was so often a subject in past centuries. There are also some examples of mourning jewelry.
