The Lightner Museum in St. Augustine, Part 2

Continuing from where I left you last time....

There were about 18 samplers on display.  Unfortunately, there was no information about any of them, and the framing was not appropriate (in my humble opinion).  Here are photographs of some of the samplers; the museum lights and the glass on the samplers presented photograpy challenges.




The next photo is a detail from the sampler shown above.






There was also a small display of exquisite laces.  Here are some of my favorites.

I am saddened that they did not do a better job of displaying this beautiful part of history, sad very sad.
Thank-you Ellen for sharing the photos with us, I see some very beautiful samplers.
I love all the lace wow.

I agree with Vickie the Sarah Ann James Sampler is beautiful.

So pretty ~ thanks for sharing! I think the Hannah Hope may have been reproduced years ago by R&R Reproductions....I'm petty surei have that one in my stash. And they always included as much history as they could with their charts. I'll have to go stash diving tomorrow to be sure it's the one I am thinking of!
