This delightfully neat and crisp school sampler was produced by Amy Louisa Grant (b 1872 – d 1943) and was made by her on the 18th of May 1885 when she was just 13 years old.

Amy Louisa Grant was born in 1872 in Chew Magna, Somerset, England. Her mother was Louisa Ellen Grant and her father was James Grant who was a school master at the tiny school in the village of Wookey Hole, Somerset (famous for its Limestone caves and witch!!). The family lived in the School for many years. Amy followed in her father’s footsteps teaching at the school for at least 20 years, her sister Mildred was also a school teacher. In the 1881 census Amy Louisa Grant is listed as occupation ‘ex pupil, teacher school’ and still living at the school. The sampler is housed behind glass in the most decorative frame.

Measuring: Frame width 8.5 inch (21.5 cm) by height 8.5 inch (21.5 cm). Frame depth 0.75 inch (2 cm). Aperture width 6.5 inch (16 cm) by height 6.5 inch (16 cm).

Condition: The sampler is in excellent condition. Minor surface wear to the frame.

Because of its excellent condition this sampler will look stunning in ANY interior, period or modern. You will be spoiled for display ideas as it works with SO many items upon your shelf or dresser.
