For sale is a vintage blue and white “Delft” cross stitch sampler. I purchased this item a few years ago when I collected Delft pottery items. The woman that sold it to me also was into Delft pottery but was downsizing. She said that she made it in the 1970’s or early 1980’s and had it professionally framed. Most of my items have moved on to new homes and it’s time for this sampler to be appreciated by someone new. It is a lovely sampler with beautiful blue and white common Delft pottery designs. Two colors of blue embroidery floss were expertly sewn to create each design. There are a total of twelve sampler designs, with a row of hearts, the alphabet and a checkerboard border at the bottom. The framed sampler (cotton cloth) measures approximately 15-3/4 x 11-6/8.” The framed size is about 17-1/4” x 13-1/4.” This item will be removed from the frame and sold as “cloth” only to save on S&H costs. It may have been mounted with adhesive so it may be tacky on the back. I haven't taken off the back paper of the hanging to check. If you are interested in keeping it in the wooden frame (it does not have a glass pane), it will be $10 more and there will be an additional shipping cost. Let me know your wishes so I can create a new invoice for you. This sampler could be used in the center of a small blue and white quilt, sewn on the front of a tote to create a lovely knitting carryall, etc. The price for the unframed sampler is $20. Just in case you are interested in additional needle work items, please visit my shop. I have several handcrafted items as well as vintage kits. I’m sorry but I only accept PayPal as my method of payment and I cannot ship out of the United States at this time. Payment is due within three days. Please wait 4-5 business days for PayPal to clear. I'll send you an e-mail once your item is shipped. Thanks for stopping by!
