Large Georgian silk needlework needle work sampler sewn by Katherine Cowley in 1821. Framed in what I believe is a period frame. Starts with the alphabet repeated three times in different styles and sizes.

This is followed by the verse. "Tell me ye knowing and discerning few where I may find a friend both firm and true who dares stand by me when in deep distress and then his love and friendship most express". Katherine Cowley aged 18 1821 Katherine Cowley born 183 (should be 1803 but she missed out the 0).

Below that is a are section depicting what I think are two parrots by the way they're using their feet to eat, between them is a stylized flower. At the base are more flowers with two lions to the centre. The sampler measures 17 inches 43 cm wide and 21 inches 53.5 cm tall. The frame measures 19 3/4 inches 50 cm wide and 24 inches 60 cm tall.

Excellent condition for it's age, 196 years old. Light discolouration with the back cloth but no holes and I can't see any thread damage or loss. The colours are still strong for it's age.
