On offer for sale is a lovely vintage needlework sampler dated 1830. That makes this piece about 191 years of age. Approximate dimensions 15 3/4 inches by 19 5/8 inches including the frame and 12 3/4 inches by 16 5/8 inches of the visible sampler. The condition is not perfect. There are some wear holes mainly at the top edge and corner, and a small one in the lower right corner along with some discoloration, staining and fading, but nothing more than you may expect for it's age. That being said, this is still a very good looking and attractive sampler. Has a very decorative border of flowers and a nice verse. Signed and dated in needlework (Ann Richards World This in The 11th. Year of Her Age 1830). 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.
