On offer for sale is a beautiful quality needlework sampler dated 1843. That makes this piece about 177 years old. The condition is good for it's age with some discolorations and some holes in the backing material, but nothing that detracts at all in my opinion. Comes with it's original birds-eye maple frame that I can see not sign that it has ever been out of. An original frame with a sampler like this is always a nice bonus. Approximate dimensions 19 1/4 inches by 19 1.4 inches including the frame and 12 1/4 inches by 12 1/4 inches of the visible sampler. Signed and dated in needlework (Georgiana Saunders May 1 1843 Aged 14). Two cherubs at the top with birds, a dog, crowns, trees, shrubs, a house and a nice verse. This sampler has it all. It's a lovely piece in an equally lovely frame. Please check out all of the images to view the wonderful quality needlework throughout. 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.
