A charming George III linen needlework sampler encased in a gold frame. It’s been decorated with the alphabet, flowers and a reglious verse or psalm. It’s very difficult to decipher all the words but from what I can understand, I believe it reads something like ” Search try O God my toughts and heart. If mischeif lurks I’ll (something) part correct me. Where I go astray and guide me in thy perfect way. To God the Soul and Spirit Glory Be as it was and is (something) small so to all eternity. Frances 1783 (or could be 1788)
The brown paper backing has a lable that reads – Lent by Miss Eccles Moneygold, Co, Sligo.
Such a special decorative piece and lovely that it has survived so many years.
Measures:37.5cm x 24.4cm
