Two George III needlework samplers, possibly by sisters Elizabeth & Frances Goodluck are for auction at Reeman Dansie this week. Both samplers display a lovely free floral border. Frances' sampler is dated 1796 and Elizabeth states she was 9 when she worked hers. There are candidate Goodluck families in Andover, Hampshire and St James, Westminster - however, I cannot trace Frances - maybe there is someon who can help? The Lot 505 and comes with an estimate for both of £150 - £200. Be aware that though the overall condition of both is good, they have minor holes and discolouration. Click here for more details.
