Antique Victorian School Sampler - Sarah Jane Shropshire - Adbaston Staffs 1853:
$69


A lovely Victorian sampler embroidered with naive motifs in coloured wools by Sarah Jane Shropshire who attended school at Adbaston, Staffordshire. She completed the sampler in 1853 when she was aged 7 years. I am listing a second sampler by Sarah Jane, completed later in the same year when she was 8 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 blue letters on the top part of the sampler. It measures about 15.5 inches (39.5 cm.) square.

The photo can be enlarged for more detail.

I guarantee that this is a genuine antique sampler.
