Antique School Sampler No 2 Sarah Jane Shropshire - Adbaston Staffordshire 1853:
$40


A second charming Victorian sampler embroidered with pretty motifs and a honeysuckle border in coloured wools by Sarah Jane Shropshire who attended school at Adbaston, Staffordshire. She completed this sampler at the end of 1853 when she was aged 8 years. I am listing another sampler by Sarah Jane, completed earlier in the same year when she was 7 years old.

Records show she was born in Shropshire, the daughter of a farmer and butcher, Charles Shropshire.

It is in good, clean condition with some wear to the letters of the verse (see photo). It measures about 22 by 16 inches (56 by 41 cm.)

The photo can be enlarged for more detail.

I guarantee that this is a genuine antique sampler.
