Jane Beynon,

Wales, 1850

sampler size: 21" x 16" • framed size: 28" x 23" • sold

Welsh samplers are highly regarded for their strong, bright palette and recognizable motifs – large pots of flowers, many birds, Adam & Eve under the apple tree with serpent winding up the trunk, and depictions of churches. These samplers are often large and were made well into the late 19th century. We are pleased to offer this excellent example.

We can’t be certain of the specific identity of Jane Beynon as that surname is a common Welsh family name and there are many girls with that name recorded in the 1851 Wales Census.

The sampler was worked in wool on linen and is in excellent condition. It has been conservation mounted and is in its fine, original maple frame with a gilt liner.
