Embroidered Samplers

119b – Mary Frances Hatton was only 10 years old when she completed her Sampler in 1823. Mainly embroidered in exquisitely tiny cross-stitch, she enhanced some areas with satin stitch. Mary must have enjoyed sewing, because she filled her fabric with as many motifs (which include 21 birds – of various breeds such as owls, peacock, pigeon and 3 buildings – possibly garden features on a Family Estate) as she could.  This Sampler has been conserved by being hand sewn onto natural unbleached Irish linen, before being framed and glazed. A little research on the internet shows that a Mary Frances Hatton was born on 3/9/1812, and christened on 4/10/1812 at Saint Saviour, Southwark,  and that her parents were Thomas Hatton and Frances, his wife. It is very likely that this is the Mary Frances who made the Sampler 10 years later. Note: this information has not been verified with the parish registers. £645 (postage not included).

244 Ross, Emma Mercy – A very unusual and individual beadwork “Sampler” entitled A Mother’s Prayer in the form of an acrostic. The tiny glass beads [green for the patterned border and red for the poem] are sewn onto fine Bristol Board. This appears to have been worked by Emma Ross in 1860 and it relates to her new baby daughter Emma Mercy. It includes a number of spelling mistakes, which adds to its charm, but the initial letter of each line of the poem spells out her baby’s name. A little research on the internet shows that Emma Mercy Ross birth was registered in Kensington in 1860. By the time of the 1881 census her father had died, but she was living with her mother and some of her siblings in New Road Cottage, Kingston upon Thames. The census shows Emma Ross then aged 45 was born in Harrow and that Emma Mercy was born in Paddington. Her siblings shown are Arthur Herbert Ross, age 13, Naomi Beatrice Ross, age 12, Nina Alice Ross, age 10 – all born in Kensington and Milly Jessie Ross, age 8, born in Kingston. Note: this information has not been verified with the parish registers. N.B. A piece of brown parcel wrapping paper glued over the back of the frame is addressed to “Mrs Mills, 1 Rose Villas, Billinshurst, Sussex”, the postmark is illegible but it franked a stamp of George VI. This beadwork is in its original frame and the price does not include postage and packing. £275
