On offer for sale is a wonderful old needlework sampler dated 1844. That makes this piece around 177 years of age. The condition is good, but not perfect. There are a few small holes and some discolorations due to age. Approximate dimensions 14 1/2 inches by 14 1/2 inches including the frame and 12 inches by 12 inches of the visible sampler. Signed and dated in needlework (Ann Webb November 26th 1844 Aged 12 years). The frame is not perfect, it has some damage to the gesso mostly on the bottom edge, but still goes well with this vintage piece. Decorated with a very nice verse, with trees, crowns, birds, animals and the alphabet at the top. Please view all images to see the quality needlework and overall condition. 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. 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.
