Hand stitched in 1913 in blue and pink yarn, this would have served as an example of a young lady's needlework skills when seeking employment. This sampler features letters, numbers, a cross flanked by two birds, and the initials 'GM'.

The ebonised frame has a gold slip, both of which have age related wear.

A true snapshot of a bygone era.

We purchased this in Paris.
