Price: $750.00
Victorian, dated 1839 1839 Sampler by Ann Hulse. Framed in an old, possibly original, wood frame with rippled, old glass. Stitched to card with wood stretcher frame. Backed with linen, with newspaper and wallpaper glued to the reverse. The sampler is worked in fine wool and silk on canvas ground, in cross stitch throughout. Meandering floral border. Colours olive green, blue, pale blue, black, pink, light green, orange, peach and red. Verse reads ''The year rolls round and steals away> The breath that first it gave> Whateer we do whereer we be> Were travelling to the grave''. Signed and dated ''Ann Hulse 1839''. A good set of motifs, including Adam & Eve standing either side of the tree of life with a snake coiled around its trunk, a bird, rabbit, squirrel, insect, flowers, potted flowering plants, posies, basket of flowers and fir trees. Very Good. No holes. No stains other than slight uniform age darkening of the ground. No stitch losses. Colours are mostly good and strong with no noticeable fading. No colour run. Stretching is slightly uneven. Frame showing some wear, but is structurally sound and in our opinion could be hung ''as is''. 16.75ins by 19ins wide
