The sampler is worked in silk on linen ground, in cross stitch throughout. Meandering floral border. Colours browns, black, greens and cream. Verse reads ‘Christ is the sure foundation stone>On which his church is built>Twas he who bore her sin alone>For her his blood was spilt’. Signed and dated ‘Charlotte Needham 1829’. A scattering of interesting motifs, including stags, flowers, squirrels, fir trees, a lion and an urn with the inscription ‘PRS CHARLOTTE DIED NOV 6, 1817’.

Object Condition

Generally Good. A number of holes. Age darkening of the ground in the middle, all around, except a few inches around the left, top and right sides, which are still bright and fresh. This is a remnant from a prior mounting. No stitch losses other than to the holed areas. Colours are all good and strong with no noticeable fading. No colour run. Neatly and evenly stretched. Frame in very good condition, ready to hang.
