ON offer for sale is wonderful old needlework sampler dating to the early 1800's. The condition is good for it's age with mainly just small holes. Lower left border and just to the right top of the Tree of Life, along with a few other very tiny ones. Nothing could detract from this beautiful sampler, it's a knockout piece in my opinion. Signed in needlework (Elizabeth Argent Aged 14). There's a red cottage with a picket fence, a bee hive, reindeer, birds, cherubs in four places, trees, shrubs, animals, Adam and Eve with The Tree of Life or knowledge and a center verse. Approximate dimensions 13 1/4 inches by 13 1/2 inches including the frame and 12 inches by 12 1/2 inches of the visible sampler. Comes with a newer frame with non-reflective glass. 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.
