HomeProductsContact Us





A very unusual 19th century needlework sampler worked in the full, with coloured wools, and depicting across the bottom, a view of a large Infirmary. The top half full of imagery, a central image of the Virgin Mary. to the left a large ship often representative of Hope, above this a harp, the music of the angels. Top right a gull flies in front of a rainbow, below this a homely cottage with its black dog out side.
Across the bottom the statement reads , J Was sick, and ye visited me, was a stranger and ye took me in W.
Who JW was we will never know, one presumes, she recovered to complete her sampler as a testimony to her treatment and care in the hospital.
