Antique Needlework Sampler By Anne Dingley Aged 10 - Adam & Eve :
ANTIQUE NEEDLEWORK SAMPLER BY ANNE DINGLEY AGED 10
Size - 11 x 11 inches
An interesting sampler, worked in coloured silks on a linen ground by Anne Dingley aged 10. It is undated but I would date it to the first half of the 19th Century. It has an alphabet, flower, bird and lion motifs with the figures of Adam and Eve. It is in good condition with no holes in the linen and no apparent stitch loss, however, there is a considerable amount of fading to some colours. I have removed from it's frame and will send as shown.
