Depicting sailors in the yard arms of a full square rigged sailing ship. Very much in the manner of more familiar English samplers for which this can very easily be mistaken.
See the other very similar slightly later sampler Ref 16590 which appears to have come from the same commnity or even same family.
dated ' Anno 1720 ' - perhaps celebratory of the Treaty of Hague
