On offer for sale, being sold together, two needlework samplers done by sisters back in 1827 and 1831....It's not very often that two samplers from the same family turn up, and it seems to me that these two samplers should be kept together and sold as a pair....They are both in good original condition with just some discoloration and fading due to age....The oldest sampler signed in needlework (Jane Wilstrop Stokesley Aged 9 years June the 8th. 1827)....Approximate dimensions 13 inches by 13 1/4 inches including the frame and 12 inches by 12 1/4 inches of the visible sampler....The second sampler is signed in needlework (Charlotte Wilstrop Stokesley October 20th. 1831)....Approximate dimensions 12 inches by 13 inches including the frame and 11 inches by 11 3/4 inches of the visible sampler....Both samplers are on their original stretcher backing....Both frames are a later replacement....I personally think these would look great if they were framed together in one frame....Please check out all of the images to see the quality needlework in both samplers....Some of the stitching in the 1831 sampler is more faded, probably due to the color of thread that was used....Both sisters used the same verse....I can't say enough good things about both samplers, they are just great, and like I said before, to have two by sisters from the same family makes this even more special....Samplers like this were part of a young ladies required education back in the day....As with all vintage items like this you should expect to see some normal signs of age, after all, they are 190 years old and 186 years old respectively....AIRMAIL DELIVERY TO ALL PARTS OF THE USA & PARTS OF CANADA WILL BE $35, & TO PARTS OF AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND WILL BE $50....ITEMS USUALLY ARRIVE WITHIN A FEW DAYS....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.........
