Anne Thomas 1854, Hands Across the Sea Samplers

$32.00 $19.00

Description

A gorgeous new reproduction sampler from Hands Across the Sea Samplers.  An absolutely beautiful Welsh sampler.

From Hands Across the Sea  “The moment we saw Anne’s delightful sampler, we knew that she was one for Hands Across the Sea Samplers. Whilst acquired by Nicola at an auction in Wales, the sampler was destined for Sandra who has a life-long love of birds and flowers.

Anne finished her sampler in 1854 when she was fifteen years old. Executed in thirty-seven delicious colours, the scene she diligently stitched is contained within four sumptuous garlands laden with flowers which include Bourbon roses, auriculas, irises, campions and ragged robins. An inquisitive pigeon, head cocked, perches on the bough of a flowering Prunus tree.”
