This gorgeous old sampler was sewn by Hannah W Whitbread, aged 12 in 1823.
The alphabet and numbers are sewn along the top, with a flower basket, floral and animals to the rest of the piece with a pretty border all the way around to finish it off.
The condition is very good for the age with the exception of a couple of small holes which can be seen in the photographs. Many of the colours are still bright and vibrant, some of the dyes have faded a little over time which is to be expected and is commensurate with the age.
The sampler has previously been framed on a cardboard backing. We have left it on the cardboard as it gives it a little extra protection. The buyer can remove if so wished.
measures: 9 1/2 inches high x 9 inches wide
