Bristol Orphanage? Sampler for Auction * 15 July

We normally associate Bristol Orphanage samplers with red and this is blue with a red signature. However, there are incidences of 'non-red' samplers from Bristol and, given the distinctive layout and motifs, this might well be one of them. Measuring 8.25" square approx. the sampler has an estimate of £40-£50 and is Lot 44 in the Burstow and Hewett (Battle, Sussex) Auction tomorrow 14 July.

  1. I like the red samplers but this one in blue is a beauty.
