Rare 1869 Framed Needlework Sampler - Alphabet and Wedding or Anniversary - Canada
Came from an old farmstead near Guelph, Ontario, Canada
Found in the 1970s, and has been part of my own collection ever since - I am now downsizing
Outside measurement of frame is 12 x 15 x 1.25 inches thick
Cross stitch with fine wool on an open weave backing
A lot of the lower case letters are worn away with age, as well as the M in Margaret and the D in AND
Flowers and other ornaments are all good
This was found in this 19th century frame ( I believe it is the original).
The gesso finish on the frame has some wear, but there are no chips or cracks in the wood (pine) itself.
