Victorian Embroidered Sampler

Product Description

A simple but striking undated Victorian Sampler worked in thick wool on a coarse cloth by Naomi (probably the “NHA” following the alphabet are her initials). “By this you see what care my parents took of me” Naomi’s Sampler is probably typical of the thousands of now lost examples made at the “penny” schools. She was not given fine quality cloth, or silks to sew with, and probably not expert tuition, but she obviously felt her parents would be pleased with her achievement. The edges of the Sampler were turned under and hemmed, then a piece of different fabric was neatly over-sewn to the back – possibly by Naomi. It has now been conserved by being hand sewn onto natural unbleached Irish linen before being framed and glazed.
