A most unusual paper pocket watch sampler.This one is a scherensshnitte or a paper cutting.Paper pocket watch samplers rank in rareity after cloth samplers.A watch sampler was made by a beloved to be placed inside of the lid of her beloveds watch.Whenever he would open his watch,he would be reminded of his loved one.This sampler's design either has lost a strip of paper or never had one in the circle.There is foxing but no other damage.Will be shipped in a small modern frame or in cardboard,which ever seems safer.These watch samplers are usually English,but I have no provenance on it.I have never seen a sampler from scherenschnitte.Sampler has just been laid on top of a card.

In the world of samplers,there are the needlework on textile,cloth pocket watch sampler and then paper pocket watch samplers.These samplers were made by the man's sweetheart to be worn inside the lid of his pocket watch.When the man would open his watch,he would be reminded of his beloved.This one is a painted watercolor on paper.These watch samplers were usually English,but I have no provenance on this one.I see some slight spots of foxing,but no tears or other issues. I have simply laid the sampler down on a card.I will most likely mail this in a tiny modern frame for safety,if not just much cardboard reinforcemnt.

Silk threads on linen.Measures 12"x 14".Condition is very good with a tiny 1/8" hole at the bottom within the border.The frame is modern and contains the 1842 newspaper in the reverse.I have not taken the sampler out of the frame to see if the sampler was stitched to the newspaper.This was commonly done in England.The top of the sampler is the verse in clear black silk threads and the bottom is signed Harriet Featherstone Dec 3.The last two rows are sewn in light golden threads,the alphabet. The verse reads: "All thy garments smell of myrrh aloes and cassia out of the ivory palaces whereby they have made the glad kings daughters were among they honourable women up on thy right hand did stand the queen in a vesture of cold wrought about with divers colours Hearken o daughter and consider incline thine ear forsee also thine own people and thy father house **************************** Psalm 45 verse 9 was thought to be for weddings.

We took this set of 5 to the Antiques Road Show last June and had them looked at by Steven Fletcher,a Roadshow Appraiser.He appraised them at $500.These baskets were kept in a dark closet until purchased,so no patina ever developed on them.There is no damage and each fits well within the other.The smallest is 2-1/2" high and the largest is 4-1/2" high.These were woven by Liz Proctor,the last surviving weaver of the group.A xerox of the provenance will be provided to the purchaser.These xeroxes were made for each basket or grouping that the original collector had.
