Lovely old needlework embroidery sampler, from I am sure a schoolgirl, a small practice sampler with needlepoint style embroidery on a tan mesh backing; with the typical beginner cross stitch and other more intricate stitches; designs including a bird, rabbit, flower shapes and geometrics. It is signed with the initials TM (could be TH). It is in a plain brown frame under glass; this came to use from England. It is from the 1800's and in good condition. The overall framed size is 11 & 1/4" tall and 6 & 3/8" wide; and the sampler itself is 9 & 7/8" tall and 4 & 7/8" wide. Lovely historical needlework.
