A Rare and Very Beautiful Antique Large Sampler - Hand Embroidery and Hand Made Lace Border (two)

 

£220.00

Oh my days my heart skipped a beat when I discovered these samplers.  (there is another currently in the shop too).  The central hand embroidery work is embellishing a black velvet panel which has been suggested to me that it is possibly late 18th century/early 19th century and may have been a section of a table cover of sorts.  This has then been used to form a central panel that has been placed within a hand made bobbin lace border.  I've taken lots of photographs for you to browse.  
The panel has been framed at a much later date than the embroidery work was made.  Although the frame is arts and crafts in style and made from pressed/carved wood it seems to be more sixties/seventies in style.  Please note that the frame has marks and knocks here and there.
The frame is approx 94cm x 52cm and is quite heavy in weight.
The frame is glazed.
