Data Sheet

Our Stock # 24392

This is a large antique school sampler. An English, needlepoint pupil's embroidery display with political poster to verso, dating to the Victorian period, circa 1880.

  • Delightful sampler with a fascinating Victorian period poster to reverse
  • Displays a desirable aged patina within a later, quality frame
  • Cotton embroidery presents a tasteful colour palette
  • Dressed to the rear with hanging wire for ease of mounting

  • Embroidered alphabet in block letters and cursive, with numbers below
  • Embroidered by an Anne Bell at 11 years old in 1879
  • Accentuated with foliate detail to the decorative border
  • Glazed rear display's the 1883 political demonstration poster

The fascinating reverse shows an original 1883 political poster, used as a backing material a few year's after the sampler's completion. The franchise demonstration displayed occurred in the North East of England in October 1883 and was one of several nationwide demonstrations that were a precursor to the Third Reform Act (1884) and its partial inclusion of 'One Man, One Vote' which was a step along the road to all men and women having a democratic right to vote in the United Kingdom.

This is a fascinating antique school sampler, enhanced by the visible demonstration poster to the reverse. A charming social and political history record of the Victorian period, delivered ready to display.
