Very early needlework sampler dated 1735. That makes this sampler about 287 years of age. The condition is not perfect, it has some wear, holes and some old stitched repairs. Two larger holes along the left side. Considering it's age, this is still a remarkably good looking sampler with good red and green colors. Interesting row of various crowns on the lower section along with an interesting design of what looks to be birds and shrubs, with a lot of wear in this area. Approximate dimensions 10 1/4 inches by 18 inches including the frame and 7 1/4 inches by 15 1/8 inches of the visible sampler. Initialled and dated 1735 by the crowns. Comes in a very nice older, later frame. Samplers of this age are always a great find, and if the condition was better this would be a great deal more expensive, so this is a chance to own one which is not perfect, but is an extremely characterful looking piece with loads of antique charm. 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.
