Needlework Stolen

This 1804 silk and painted paper on linen sampler by Mary Bowker has been missing from the collection of the Burlington County Historical Society since October 16. Illustrated in Betty Ring's Girlhood Embroidery, Volume II, it is from a small group of locally made samplers prized for their charming depiction of a lady on horseback.
