1824 Silk On Linen Needlework Sampler By Mary Nicholson Inscription On A Sundial


Item History and Pricing
Information:
Original Description:
Offered for your consideration is a professionally framed early 19th century silk on linen needlework sampler by Mary Nicholson. This wonderful collectors item is dated 1824 and features the classic alphabet attributes of a sampler of the period as well as a statement. The statement reads: " Mark well my shade, and seriously attend the silent lesson of a common friend- since time and life speed hastily away and no one can recall the former day. Improve each fleeting hour before ti...s past. And know, each fleeting hour may be thy last." The statement appears to come from a section called "inscription on a sundial" included in Lessons for Young Persons in Humble Life by E. Frank per some research.  It is signed "Mary Nicholson's Work 1824". This wonderful timeless statement on a nearly two century piece is a must have for collectors. We were unable to find any history on the individual who created this piece. Sampler measures 16 1/2"  x 14 1/3" without frame. Measures 20 1/2" x 18 1/4" with frame. There is no known indication of where the piece was made, but it was likely made in England or New England (USA). Reasonable best offers or bids are encouraged.
