Antique Anne Hyne Sunflower Sampler

Out of stock

Ann’s sampler simply makes me smile not least because of her choice (or her teacher’s choice) of verse and so on, but the fact that she had to darn her piece of linen fabric so that she could sign her name! Her little poem about the sunflower is lovely and certainly very unusual material for the sampler. This is another sampler that would greatly benefit from a simple gold slip being added when it is framed.

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 11.5 x 13in (29 x 33cm).

The story of this little treasure

I have been collecting antique embroidery, especially samplers, since 1985 and the charm and mystery of these pieces of stitching never fail to move me. Recently a quirk of fate put me in the right place at the right time and I was able to purchase a set of antique samplers which I want to share with you.
