GEORGIAN SAMPLER ANNE BENTLEY AGED 10 ‘THE YEAR WELL SPENT’

£325.00

GEORGIAN SAMPLER.  ANNE BENTLEY AGED 10.  'THE YEAR WELL SPENT'.  Circa 1820

This well-detailed and finely-worked Georgian Sampler, framed behind non-reflective glass, dates from around 1820.

It is signed on the canvas, in the bottom right corner, Anne Bentley at School.  ‘In Her 10th Year’ is worked in stitches beneath the horse and rider.

The Verse reads:

The Year Well Spent

The year with prayer and praise begun

Each morning, noon, and setting sun

Will safely guide the spirit through

And introduce it to the new

Will rightly spend her moments given

All earth shall be exchanged for heaven

The stitches are worked on a very fine canvas.  There are a few signs of wear to this cloth but these do not detract from the overall appearance.
