Floral border containing two sets of the alphabet. Below them are initials (probably memorials). Three separate scenes are located below the initials; a small rural scene next to a much larger horn of plenty containing flowers and a beehive surrounded by gardening tools. Below these three scenes, the sampler is inscribed: Kaia ; Gulbrandsen . Fod . Den 8 . Juni . 1821. A wide variety of stitches are used and the alphabets are missing 'J'.
