Product Description

Elizabeth Hummerston embroidered her beautiful Sampler at the age of just 9 years. She didn’t put the date on it, but from the fine pale woollen tammy cloth, and the design of the embroidery, it can be dated to the early years of the 1800’s. Elizabeth sewed minute cross stitches using silks which have retained their vibrant shades – making this such an attractive Sampler.
This Sampler has been conserved by being hand sewn onto fine muslin which has been backed by conservation grade mount board before being placed in the period birds-eye maple frame.
