A rare 1827 Needlework Sampler by William Bainbridge together with a number of silks which may have been added at a later date. Every one of these samplers is usually done by a young lady so to come across one by a young man of 18 years is intriguing. My thought is that this particular piece may have been done by an injured soldier, given the military connection with the silks? The frame is 44.5 x 34.5 cms.
