On offer for sale is a very lovely vintage needlework sampler dated 1808. That makes this piece around 212 years of age. Approximate dimensions 12 inches by 16 1/2 inches. This is being sold unframed. I suspect this has never been framed in the past and has been folded away in a drawer. The condition is good for it's age with vibrant colors a few age marks and discolorations, fading and a few minor wear spots. Signed and dated in needlework (Sarah Dallow aged ? 1808). Can't quite make out the age of the young lady , but there is a 1 and another digit. It's loaded with lots of detailed needlework. Adam and Eve with the Tree of Life with two small verses on the lower half, and varying sized alphabet and numbers at the top, surrounded by and intricate border. Young ladies of means were required to complete samplers such as this to put their needlework skills to the test, plus to show their status in society. Please check out all of the images to view the intricate quality needlework in this piece. 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.
