1834 Sampler by Mary Farrall. Framed in an old wood frame with glass. Fixed to linen with wood backing. The sampler is worked in thread on a canvas ground, in cross stitch throughout. Meandering strawberry border. Colours black, blue, green, brown and cream. Verse reads 'Jesu permit thy gracious name to stand> As the first effort of a female hand> And whilst my fingers on the canvas move> Engage my tender heart to seek thy love'. Signed and dated 'Mary Farrall Aged 10 1834'. A good set of motifs, including a fruit tree with a snake wrapped around the turnk, flowering plants, dogs, fruit baskets, butterflies, hearts, fir tree and birds.
Good. Any fading, hole, stain, defect or stitch loss that may be present, is minor and not detracting.
