What the Bristol Orphanage Sampler Sold For

Some of you emailed me to find out how much Lot 44 in the 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.
