On offer for sale is a lovely vintage needlework sampler dated 1827. That makes this piece around 193 years of age. The condition is not perfect, it has fading, discoloration, with some holes and some age marks/stains. Approximate dimensions 13 inches by 13 3/4 inches including the frame and 11 7/8 inches by 12 1/2 inches of the visible sampler. Signed and dated in needlework (Isabella Kingshott Aged 11 Years 1827). Comes framed, but this could be greatly improved with a new frame, which would easily conceal the old nail marks around the edge. This is a very charming sampler with birds, dogs, plants, a girl and a nice verse. Please check out all of the images to view the overall condition and quality needlework. 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 as described. Please note, all images were taken under glass, so there may be some reflection in some of the pictures.
