On offer for sale is a lovely vintage needlework sampler dated 1846. That makes this piece around 174 years of age. This is a large sampler, approximate dimensions 21 1/2 inches by 20 3/4 inches including the frame and 18 1/4 inches by 17 3/4 inches of the visible sampler. The condition is good, but not perfect as it does have fading and discoloration due to age. No sign of any holes. I would describe this as a very honest piece. Comes with it's original frame which is always a bonus with a vintage sampler such as this. The frame just shows normal signs of age and suits this sampler perfectly. Original glass still in frame. Signed and dated in needlework (Henrietta Clark January 19th 1846). Please check out all of the images to view the wonderful quality needlework throughout. Lots of detail work with a nice old house, birds, tree, a verse and detailed 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. 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. Please note, all images were taken under glass, so there may be some reflection in some of the pictures.
