This is one of the finest school girl samplers I have had in many years. The quality of the stitching is superb. Please look at the workmanship closely. Sampler by D Harries--1838. Framed in an old, possibly original wood frame, with gilt slip and glass. Stretched over card. Chipboard backing. The sampler is finely worked in silk on linen ground, in a variety of stitches. Wonderful meandering floral border. Colors of greens, cream, pale blue and browns. Signed and dated, 'D Harries AD 1838'. A stunning flower basket and butterfly motif---I believe in perfect condition.
