Elizabeth Seville Sampler

This very special sampler, probably completed in May 1797, is a real joy. It is stitched beautifully on very fine fabric and has an absolutely lovely stitched border worked in greens and pinks. With upper and lowercase alphabets, numbers and a detailed poem about the values of an Education, it is both charming and unusual. Complete and without any damage, this is a real treasure.

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 10.5 x 11.75in (27 x 30cm).
