Sampler. Needlework sampler 1794. - image 1 of 16

Beautiful, diminutive size needlework sampler dated 1794. That makes this piece about 227 years of age. Approximate dimensions 8 1/4 inches by 10 1/2 inches including the frame and 7 1/2 inches by 9 5/8 inches of the visible sampler. The condition is good for it's age with easy to read verses, but it's not perfect. There is some wear, discolorations, fading and stains, but no more than you may expect for a piece of needlework of this age. On the lower edge there is a tiny stain and some wear holes to the backing fabric, and some discoloration towards the top left edge along with a very tiny hole just above the word Glory. Signed and dated in needlework (Ann Walter 1794). Decorated with a strawberry border, several crowns, a bird and trees. Comes with a later, older frame which shows signs of age and suits the sampler well. This is a lovely piece of needlework. 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 normal signs of age as described, after all, this is a very old piece of needlework. Please note, all images were taken under glass, so there is likely some reflection on some of the images.
