Description / Expertise

This unusual and attractive sampler was begun in 1818 by an unknown hand and completed by Sarah E. Bradley, aged 14 in 1871.

Worked in red thread, typical of some charity school and orphanage samplers. It contains the same bible design and other motifs found on many Bristol Orphanage samplers. However it's precise connection to this group of samplers is unresolved.
