Sampler. Needlework sampler 1812. - image 1 of 16

On offer for sale is a very interesting needlework sampler dated 1812. That makes this piece about 209 years of age. Approximate dimensions 15 1/2 inches by 15 inches including the frame and 12 3/4 inches by 12 3/8 inches of the visible sampler. The condition is good for it's age, but it's not perfect, there are some small holes. There is a nice center prayer surrounded by various head adornments along with the title of who would wear them, they range from a King to a Bishop. There is a lovely cat in the lower left corner and a dog in the lower right corner. Signed in needlework (Mary Green June 1st 1812). Comes with a later style frame which is not perfect and has some gesso loss and some spotty loss to the finish. Young ladies of means were required to complete samplers such as this to put their needlework skills to the test, plus to show their status in society. Please view all images as they form part of the description. As with all vintage pieces such as this you should not expect them to be perfect as they will show signs of age as described, after all, this is a very old piece of needlework.
