The Welsh Sale

Lot 6

TWO FRAMED VICTORIAN WELSH WOOL SAMPLERS WORKED BY TWO GENERATIONS OF AN ANGLESEY FAMILY both of similar design including the same red brick family farmhouse to the centre above a sailing ship, both with baskets of flowers, trees and alphabet practice. One monogrammed `JM` and each dated 1847 and 1883. Interestingly the later has a religious passage in English while the earlier is in Welsh (perhaps symbolic of the English language indoctrination of Welsh communities later in the century), 43 x 40cms and 41 x 41cms¦Provenance: entered by the descendants of the same Anglesey family, the house being Ty Croes Farm` near Llanerchymedd, Anglesey and is still in existence but no longer occupied by the family
