Oldenwelder Antique Needlework Sampler
Save to Favorites Go to Favorites




An unusually fine Lehigh Valley needlework by Ellen E. Oldenwelder. This sampler can be attributed to the school of Mrs. Mary Ralston of Easton and is similar in its design and technique  to other known examples, see Betty Ring, Girlhood Embroidery, page 450-52.

Ellen Oldenwelder was born in 1820 in Northampton, Pennsylvania. She was the second of eight children born to Michael and Sarah Barnett Odenwelder and probably worked her embroidery around 1833-35.

 This beautiful needlework  is worked in wool on linen and is in excellent condition with good color. It has been fully conserved in an early frame. There is a small area of stitch loss in the lower right hand corner. 25" wide X 21 1/2" high, sampler size.

Price: $ 18,000
