On offer for sale is a beautiful quality antique needlework sampler from the early 1800's....Approximate dimensions 16 1/2 inches by 14 1/4 inches including the frame, and 11 1/2 inches by 10 inches of the visible sampler.... It's in very good condition, especially when you consider how old it is....There is just a very tiny hole in the backing fabric on the very top edge, but hardly worth mentioning....Please look at all images to see the outstanding style of needlework, especially on the larger numbers and letters....The young lady who produced this unique piece of needlework is "Hannah Matilda Clark", and is dated May 1800...The two zeros in 1800 are drawn in rather than stitched, which would leave some speculation as to why Hannah didn't complete this work?...I would have to assume that perhaps her parents had to do this for some reason....Samplers like this were a necessary skill for young ladies back in the day, and would have taken more than a year to complete, which is why the actual year would have been completed last of all....There are no excused to have to be made for this lovely piece, and it's been professionally framed in a top quality antique style frame, that looks to be made from walnut, and suits this sampler perfectly....This unique sampler is ready to be hung on your wall and enjoyed for many years to come....AIRMAIL DELIVERY TO ALL PARTS OF THE USA, PARTS OF AUSTRALIA AND CANADA WILL BE $30, AND ITEMS USUALLY ARRIVE WITHIN A FEW DAYS....This sampler will be packed in a custom made wooden box to ensure it's safe arrival....Payment can be with paypal from customers with CONFIRMED and VERIFIED PAYPAL ACCOUNTS....Please check your paypal account status....Collection in person is not available, this item must be mailed to a verified address....Please email with any questions and thanks for looking in today.........
