A fine 19th century Nova Scotia sampler made by Sarah Jane Purney of Sandy Point, Nova Scotia. Sarah Jane Purney was born in Jordan Bay, Shelburne County, Nova Scotia, around 1845, and died there in 1914. She descended from a Loyalist family who settled in the town of Shelburne in 1783. This sampler is a particularly good example in excellent condition and features some wonderful motifs, including a starflower, a crown, potted plants and a central vase of flowers. 

Dimensions: 19"x19"
