Fabulous Sampler 1845 Mary Ann Mortimer Aged 10 Years Hymns for Infant Mines
A fabulous work of a 10 years old girl, Mary Ann Mortimer.
The middle of the sampler shows a touching part of Hymns of Infant Minds, I mean a thankfulness love declaration of little Mary to her parents.
The sampler shows rich motifs, flowers, birds, dogs, lions. Incredible good done considering the age of Mary.
The stitches are made of silk, very pleasant harmonically colors.
The condition of the sampler is commensurate to the age. There are two or three holes of the fine linen near to the center of the sampler and several losses and tears to the edges. The cloth is NOT fixed/glued on the paper base.
The frame – a simple golden baguette- is contemporary.
The sampler measures 10.8 x 11.2 inches. Framed: 14.2 x 14.6 inches.
