Large Victorian Sampler by Mary Wheatcroft of Chesterfield
A Charming and unusually large Sampler by Mary Emma Wheatcroft of Chesterfield, dated 1875, in good fresh condition with slight wear & tear commensurate with age. Close-ups of the latter are shown in photos 4 & 5. The happy first verse of text begins, amongst the delightful birds, flowers, trees and butterflies surrounding the house:
"My home, My own dear home
It is a happy place
Where smiles of love are seen
On each dear familiar face"
Above this are the beautifully detailed letters of the alphabet and numerals, all surrounded by the prettiest of patterned borders
