Anthony J Sargeant Collection of Antique Textiles

Standard

Anthony Sargeant has a number of high quality embroidered samplers in the collection ranging in date from about 1650 up to 1912. This one is a favourite even though it is somewhat damaged and does not have a date woven into it (always a desirable feature) nevertheless on stylistic and material grounds it clearly dates from about 1800. At present it hangs on a dark staircase.
