Style/ Origin:

English


 This is a beautiful

VICTORIAN ANTIQUE

PICTORIAL

NEEDLEWORK SAMPLER

containing a view of

THE CRYSTAL PALACE

in

LONDON

In my estimation it dates from around the mid 19th Century, circa 1874, but please make up your own mind about this.

The sampler measures approx 21 inches (540mm) long by 18 inches (460mm) wide and is worked in wool, and mounted in its original unglazed oak frame.

It is nicely crafted and contains the workers' name

SOPHIA ELIZABETH

PAGE AGED XI

amidst trees and flowers, and a depction of the famous

CRYSTAL PALACE

in

London.

All these elements are set within a floral border, and the sampler is marked on the reverse

MOTHER WORKED THIS IN 1874

along with a label detailing the history of The Crystal place itself.

This fine antique sampler is in good original condition with very light wear consistent with its great age, but no damage, tears, moth holes, or repairs.

It is an interesting example of its type and it would make a beautiful display piece and be a fine addition to any collection.

Please see the photos for condition and type

There is no reserve
