Rachel Ann Grey Sampler

Out of stock

This sweet little sampler has been worked by Rachel on non-evenweave linen which I have counted, and it appears to be over 40 threads to the inch. We are used to stitching on evenweave fabrics, but the fabric used here could have been 40 threads one direction and 60 threads in the other.

This sampler is complete and, apart from the rust mark, is in very good condition. It has a hand stitched hem around the edge and two complete alphabets and numerous motifs beautifully stitched. The sampler is not dated but I am guessing the end of the 1700s based on the use of some of the motifs which were typical of this period.

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 completed sampler measures 5.5 x 9in (14 x 23cm).
