This is an utterly charming little Victorian sampler that is just ready to hang and admire. Very neatly and finely stitched in traditional red silk upon a very fine muslin ground we see Emily Porritt's April 9th 1879 rendition in thread of the poem by the 16th century Tudor poet John Wilbye (1578 to 1638) titled

A Jewel
There is a jewel no mine can buy
Or chemic art can counterfeit
It makes men rich in poverty
Makes water wine turns wood cups to gold
The whistle to sweet music's strain
Seldom it comes from heaven sent
That much in little - content.

Framed in a reproduction ribbed Georgian painted wood frame, behind glass and set in gilt slip.

Measuring 9.75"(24.5 cm) by 8.75" (22.5 cm) by 0.75"(2 cm), sight 7.5" (19 cm) by 6.75" (17 cm).

Condition: Very good, clean and bright condition.
