Sarah Burlingham 1763

Rare eighteenth century sampler dated in Roman numerals 1763. Worked by Sarah Burlingham in Nottingham. We believe Sarah came from a Quaker family from Worcestershire, the daughter of John and Candia Burlingham, John was a prosperous glover from the town. This sampler is likely worked when Sarah was 14 years of age. The pair of columns either side of the verse taken from Psalms 114 are exquisitely and minutely worked with a trailing flower head and leaf design. The sampler is surrounded by its original and highly unusual mount of woven silks into which is woven the verse 'VIRTUE'S A TOWR THAT NEER WILL DECAY. BEAUTY'S A FLOWER THAT FADETH AWAY'. Worked in coloured silks on a fine linen ground.
Framed size 40 x 37 cm

Worked in coloured silks on a linen ground.
