Vintage, alphabet needlework sampler from the first part of the 1800's. Beautiful colors throughout with reds, greens and yellows. Approximate dimensions 8 3/4 inches by 17 3/4 inches including the frame and approx. 8 inches by 17 inches of the visible sampler. The condition is good for it's age with some discolorations, fading, age marks and a couple of very tiny holes hardly worth mentioning. Please note, there are some white reflections on some of the images which are only there due to the reflection from the glass in the frame and are not present in real life. Signed in needlework (Susanna Jackson). Comes in a later frame from the early 1900's. There is an interesting old label on the back from about the same time-frame as the frame suggesting Susanna Jackson was born about 1660. Obviously, I am not able to verify that as the date is not on the actual sampler. This is a very attractive looking sampler. 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 white reflection on some of the images.
