On offer for sale is a beautiful needlework sampler dated 1837. The condition is good for it's age with some fading and discoloration. Approximate dimensions 12 3/4 inches by 18 1/2 inches including the frame and 11 inches by 17 inches of the visible sampler. Lots of decoration in this piece. Looks to be a cat or a dog on the left side with a peacock just below. A white rabbit in the lower left corner with various plants in urns. The date is just above the cat or dog to the right. There seem to be initials in various areas, and there could possibly be a name, but I can't make it out. 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 is some reflection in some of the pictures.
