On offer for sale is a wonderful needlework sampler dated 1787. That makes it approximately 230 years old. The dimensions are 14 1/2 inches by 17 1/4 inches including the frame and 12 3/4 inches by 15 1/2 inches of the visible sampler. This beautiful piece of history is in good condition for it's age, but please note that it does have some age related holes in the fabric mainly around the edge (please view all images). Very minor when you consider the age of this piece....The main body of the sampler is in very good shape. It's signed and dated Elizabeth Shuttleworth October the 12, 1787. Just to put this in perspective, George Washington didn't become President of the USA until April of 1789. The quality of the needlework is outstanding. The age of the young lady who did this sampler is not known, but most of these were done at a young age of around ten....No two samplers can ever be exactly the same as they are totally hand made and original. The frame is in good condition with a little wear, nicks and usage marks as you might expect, and the sampler has been in this frame for a very long time....There is lots of details work in this sampler, with harts and crowns of various designs. If you like genuine old samplers, you won't be disappointed with this wonderful old piece, and it's ready to be hung on the wall and enjoyed for many more years to come, but please bear in mind that this is around 230 years old and will show some normal signs of age such as wear, usage marks and discolorations. This sampler will be very well packed in a custom made wooden box to ensure it's safe arrival. UPS AIRMAIL DELIVERY TO ALL PARTS OF THE USA & PARTS OF CANADA will be $35 & TO PARTS OF AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND WILL BE $55.
