Ann Hull 1836 Sampler

antique sampler reproduction

An original sampler from the antique samplers collection of Giulia Manfredini. Reproduced by Giulia Manfredini, designer of Giulia Punti Antichi.

A few years ago I saw this sampler on eBay and I was so fortunate to win the auction for it. Ann Hull stitched her sampler at the age of 11 in 1836 in England and used many motifs and symbolisms of antique samplers.
