On offer for sale is a beautiful old needlework sampler dating to the early part of the 19th. Century. The condition is not perfect as it has some overall old holes in the backing material. It's only the backing material which has the holes and not the stitching and in my opinion does not detract at all, just adds to the overall antique appeal of this piece. Comes with it's original frame. Approximate dimensions 15 3/4 inches by 19 1/2 inches including the frame and 11 3/4 inches by 15 1/2 inches of the visible sampler. Signed in needlework (Louisa Lonington aged 13). Lots of detail work in this sampler, with various birds, butterflies, squirrels, a dog, and an intricate border design. This is a very impressive looking sampler which shows very well, and to have the original frame is always a bonus. The frame has that wonderful old alligator finish which only comes with time. Original old glass in the frame as well. This type of needlework skill was all part of a young ladies education back in the day. As with all vintage items such as this you should not expect them to be perfect as they will show normal signs of age such as usage marks, wear and discoloration.
