1864 Dated – SCHOOLGIRL SAMPLER

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Still housed in its poplar wood backed period frame this 11 ¾ X 13 9 1/6 sampler was stitched by nine year old Emma Andrew in 1864. Remaining in pleasing condition while showing convincing age and originality, our photo illustrations will speak best for condition and eye appeal. Carefully stitched with the alphabet in upper and lower case, and a set of numerals 0 through 9, Emma documented her work with her name and Age 9 years – 1864 – Ketton School. Found in New Hampshire, a rudimentary search offered a U. S. Census record of Emma listed as Emma Jane Andrew born about 1853 in Sutton, New Hampshire to George and Mary Andrew. It appears that Emma remained in New Hampshire all her life passing away at New London, N. H. in 1929. Her needlework sampler remains as a staple of mid 1800s America as while boys (with parents of some means and priority) were taught the three Rs, their sisters might be tutored in the barest rudiments of reading and arithmetic while the focus of their education was on an assortment of skills necessary to family feeding, clothing andkeeping house. Popular among antique Americana and textile enthusiasts, in the day the 19th century child’s sampler offered tutorial, final exam and future family heirloom. This Civil War dated example will be of special interest to collectors in that popular venue. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
