On offer for sale is a beautiful quality, early needlework sampler dated 1796 which originates from Scotland. That makes this sampler about 225 years of age. The condition is good for it's age with some minor and old restoration stitches on the top and lower edge, and there is a small age stain in the upper left corner, but all very minor when you consider how old this piece is. A very stylish looking sampler with good clear colors. Approximate dimensions 11 1/2 inches by 13 1/4 inches including the frame and 9 1/2 inches by 11 1/4 inches of the visible sampler. Comes with a later frame which it looks like it's been in for the last hundred years or so, and shows normal signs of age, wear and usage marks. Signed and dated in needlework (Annet McMurtrie. Maybole 1796). Maybole is a town in Scotland. This is a very charming piece of early 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.
