Burstow and Hewett (Battle, Sussex) Auction sold for. Although worked in blue, it looked to our eyes like a Bristol Orphanage Sampler - and in fact I have had an image of a very different polychrome sampler from Bristol Orphanage sent to me just this week, so there are other variants to the traditional red monochrome scheme we often see. And A Merrett is the name of a girl who was at the Bristol Orphanage. So how much did it sell for? Amanda at Burstow and Hewitt tells me the hammer went down at £190.
