On offer for sale is a vintage needlework sampler dated 1831. That makes this piece about 190 years old. The condition is not perfect, there is some deterioration in the form of some holes mainly in the lower left corner, a smaller one in the top left corner, along with a few other very tiny ones and there are signs of fading, but no more than would be expected for a piece of this age. This is still a very attractive looking antique needlework sampler and worthy to be displayed in any ones home. Please check out all of the images to view the quality needlework and overall condition. Approximate dimensions 14 1/4 inches by 16 inches including the frame and 12 1/2 inches by 14 1/2 inches of the visible sampler. Signed and dated in needlework ( E. Meacock 1831). Alphabet and numbers at the top and a very nice verse in the center, with flower decorations in the corners and a decorative edge. Comes with an older frame, which it looks to have been in for a very long time, and the frame shows some signs of age with wear and usage marks. 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.
