Small 19th century sampler by C A Miles, aged 9, sewn in 1881. This little sampler is completely charming with neat stitch work throughout. The upper section of the sampler is stitched with rows of alphabet letters, the middle section has bird and plant motifs and the sewer’s details, whilst the lower section contains a bible verse.
The fabric has overall discolouration consistent with its age, slightly darker in places, and the colours of the embroidery threads have faded in places. Please enlarge the photographs to check the condition. This will also show you how neatly it was sewn! It was not framed that well so you can see the edge of the fabric at the top of the frame.
The sampler itself measures 28.5 cm x 38 cm. The frame measures 40 cm x 51 cm.
