An 1826 New York State School Girl Sampler by Zorada Ransom (Jan. 27, 1814 – Dec. 15, 1903) completed when she was 13 years old living in Champlain, Clinton, New York. In 1842 she married George Dudley (June 16, 1807 – Feb. 2, 1860), Champlain, New York, who is listed as a Lumberman in the 1850 U.S. Census, with considerable assets for the time period. After George died, Zorada Dudley is listed as a Widow Keeping House in the 1880 U.S. Census, so George Dudley must have left Zorada enough money to survive until her death in 1903. Both individuals are buried in the Greenwood Cemetery in Champlain, New York. Within the border of the Sampler, there is an Undulating Vine Border with a House, Flower, Tree, and Square at each Corner. Within the Border are 3 Alphabets and Numbers, Her Age and Date for Completing the Sampler, and a Final Verse: “The End of Learning is to Know God and Love Him”. The Sampler is the Work of Silk on Linen in a Variety of Stitch Patterns. Measures: Sampler 12 ½” x 11 ¾”; with Frame 13 ¾” x 12 ¾”. Condition is Very Good with Minor Stains.

Beautiful 19th Century Walnut Knife Tray in Very Good Original Condition. Though it was found in New England, it may be either American or British in Origin. The Wood is Quite Appealing and the Finish is Untouched. This 17” x 10 ¾” Tray displays Canted Sides, Cut Nail Construction, a Nicely Rounded Base, and a Cleanly Formed Handle. The Bottom provides a good deal of information about the age of the tray; the Maker used Hand Scribed Lines to determine the edges of the sides and the Cut Nail use is suggested by the Form of the Filled Holes (see photographs). The Height of the Handle is 6 ½”, plus the ½” Bottom Board. Nice Piece for Display or Use.
