On offer for sale is a lovely quality vintage needlework sampler dated 1853. Approximate dimensions 17 1/2 inches by 14 3/2 inches including the frame and 12 1/2 inches by 9 3/4 inches of the visible sampler. The condition is good for it's age, but not perfect. There are three holes on either side. This would have happened from where it was fixed in it's previous frame. Currently this is in a more modern frame and matting. Lovely quality needlework with lots of detail with birds, deer, hearts, crowns, flowers and vases of flowers etc. Signed and dated in needlework (Marian Selleks 1853 aged 13 Hants). Hants is an abbreviation for the County of Hampshire. This type of work was required by young ladies of means as part of their education back in the day to test their needlework skills. I can't imagine anyone would be disappointed with this sampler, but as with all vintage pieces such as this you should not expect them to be perfect as they will show normal signs of age such as fading and discoloration and as described. Please note: There is some reflection from the glass in some of the images especially the ones which show the matting.
