Stop Press! West-Town School 1801 Sampler for Auction in Bridport, Dorset, UK

Get saving! On 23 September 2010, Dukes of Bridport, Dorset, UK are to auction at Melplash Court Lot No 247 which comprises: 'A VICTORIAN PETIT POINT PICTURE of a dog after Sir Edwin Landseer, 9.75” x 13”, apparently retaining the original black and gilt eglomise mount and rosewood frame, and a George III sampler by “Matsey Gibbons West-Town School 1801”, 10.25” x 10.25”. The estimate is £100-200 for the pair. Remember you need to register with the auction house before you can leave a bid. A very interesting West Country-Pennsylvania Quaker connection. More to come....
