Mary Jaene Edmonds Sampler Collection for Auction * Sothebys * 26 January 2013

Mary Jaene Edmonds bought her first sampler in the early 1970s when she knew very little about them and when they attracted little attention - all that would change in the 80s and 90s! Sampler prices at auction rocketed and Mary Jaene went on to publish her admirable book Samplers and Samplermakers which includes all the works that will be auctioned.
The Mary Jaene Edmonds Collection of American Schoolgirl Samplers comprises over 70 examples from the early 18th to the late 19th century. A catalogue for the larger sale to include the Mary Jaene Edmonds collection will be available from Sothebys at the beginning of 2013.
