On offer for sale is an unusually large size vintage needlework sampler from the first half of the 1800's. Approximate dimensions 26 1/2 inches by 26 1/2 inches including the frame and 25 inches by 25 inches of the visible sampler. The overall condition is good for it's age with some discoloration and age marks, and some discolorations around the verse. Good vibrant colors. Signed in needlework (Anne Butler Ages 11 Years). Looks like the large bird on the left may have originally been intended to have more detail around it?? This is a large and very impressive looking sampler. Comes framed, but the frame is not old. Due to the size, the delivery is obviously more costly, but if anyone wanted just the sampler without the frame, I could remove the sampler and send it folded in a cardboard box for a much lower delivery cost. 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 will likely be some reflection in some of the pictures.
