Georgian Sampler, 1823.
Sampler dated 1823, by Elizabeth Clegg. Embroidered on linen with the motif as follows:
“All you my friends who now expect to see,
A piece of needlework performed by me
Cast but a smile on this my mean endeavour
I’ll serive (sic) to mend and be obedient ever”.
Pretty embroidered outer border with inner depictions or a tree with deer, flowers, and a table and two chairs. Under glass, with modern frame measuring 50 cm high by 49 cm wide. Sampler is intact, with only one small area of thread loss to the background fabric. Really very good condition all round.
