Antique Sampler, 1843, by Eliza Harness. Framed in an old wood frame with glass. Mounted to conservator standards on acid free card with cardboard backing. The sampler is worked in very fine silks on linen ground, in a variety of stitches. Floral border. Colours blues, gold, greens and brown. Verse reads 'If we love Father,Mother,friend.> More than the Saviour dear,> He plainly tells us we are then> Unworthy of his care.' Signed and dated, 'Eliza Harness Aged 13 Years 1843'. A good set of motifs, including squirrels, potted flowering plants and birds.
Very Good. Any fading, hole, stain, defect or stitch loss, if present, is very minor and in no way detracting.
