On offer for sale is a beautiful vintage needlework sampler dated 1814. Approximate dimensions 14 1/4 inches by 18 1/2 inches including the frame and 12 3/4 inches by 16 7/8 inches of the visible sampler. The condition is not perfect, there are some holes, fading, wrinkling and discoloration due to age, but when you consider this piece is around 206 years old, it's doing remarkably well and looks great. Comes with it's original frame which it shows no signs of ever being out of. The frame is also not perfect, but suits the sampler perfectly. Signed and dated in needlework (Elizabeth Lee 1814). Please check out all of the images to see the wonderful quality needlework in this piece. Nice verse at the top (On The Barren Fig Tree), along with the tree of life with Adam and Eve, Birds, reindeer, squirrels and lots of other fine decorative designs. Back in the day young ladies of means were required as part of their education to create a sampler such as this to put their needlework skills to the test. These would have taken many months and more to complete. 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 as described. Please note, all images were taken under glass, so there is likely some reflection in some of the pictures.
