Red and Green
Palmetto, Marshall Co.

914"V x 1114"H © TSS 171
fibers: silk and wool
ground: 20 ct. perforated paper
Susan Denny Dysart (1831-1881) was born in the part of Bedford Co. that later became Marshall Co. She married Robert S. Montgomery in 1855.
This small motto sampler was worked after Susan finished her more elaborate piece of 1847 (TSS 170), perhaps to keep her sister Clinton company while Clinton worked on hers (TSS 172). The blue-gray perforated paper is an unusual choice for the ground.
