Ann Symons Sampler

This unusual early sampler almost fills the space on the linen completely with few errors and no holes or other damage and has a fine folded hem. Completed by Ann in 1796, it was a real find!

The colours have remained strong and the stitching is wonderfully naïve. Anne has included two alphabets and numbers with decorative crowns as details. In addition, she has worked the Lord’s Prayer in its entirety. We do not know how old she was when she finished her stitching but it is really charming.

I have mounted the sampler on to a piece of unbleached linen and acid free card ready for you to have framed if you wish. The sampler measures 9.5 x 10.5in (24 x 27cm)
