Miniature Antique Georgian Sampler By Ann Dobson 1748 Aged 10 Years For Sale


MINIATURE ANTIQUE GEORGIAN SAMPLER BY ANN DOBSON 1748 AGED 10 YEARS

An amazing little sampler embroidered by a young girl named Ann Dobson dated 1748. The work is embroidered in silk on cotton linen, incredibly fine detail which is all the more amazing when yourealizethat Ann was only 10 years old. The sampler only measures 10.5 x 8 inches approx and is in immaculate condition. There are no missing stitches and no holes. The colours have faded slightly as they are much brighter on the reverse which has been protected from light (Photo 4).

The top half of the sampler has a charming motto which reads:

THE TIME MAY COME ERR IT BE LONG THAT I MAY TRULY SAY I WISH I HAD MORE LEARNING GOT AND MINDED LESS MY PLAY

The lower half lists The Lords Prayer in full and just underneath Ann signs her work

ANN DOBSON WROUGHT THIS IN 1748 AGED 10 YEARS

A rare survivor of the 18th century. The background linen has darkened with age but otherwise the condition is superb.
