On offer for sale is a wonderful quality needlework sampler dated 1839. That makes this piece around 180 years old. Approximate dimensions 13 3/4 inches by 15 1/2 inches including the frame and 12 inches by 14 inches of the visible sampler. It's in good original condition with just one tiny hole on the lower outer edge and another in the top left area which are difficult to see and hardly worth mentioning. Comes in it's original frame and glass. Shows no sign it has ever been out of it's frame. Original frames with these samplers are always a big bonus, it's a bit like having the original box to a vintage toy. Obvious signs of wear to the frame as you would expect and totally in keeping for this vintage piece. Signed and dated in needlework (Sarah Hunt North Mundham Sussex Aged 14 years finished this work April 2 1839). Beautiful and delicate needlework in this sampler, please check out all of the images to see all of the detail work, and the condition really is exceptional. This is a lovely piece without exception. This type of work was all part of a young ladies education back in the day, at least it was for those who could afford to send their children to school. Lovely verse at the top area as well. I can't imagine anyone could be disappointed with this piece, but please remember it is a vintage piece and will show normal signs of age.
