embroidered sampler

This hand embroidered sampler was an ebay purchase. Designed by the Royal School of Needlework for the tobacco firm W.D & H.O Wills to commemorate the coronation in 1953. I have never seen another one like it and think i am very lucky to have it in my collection. Please click on the picture to see more detail.


  1. Oh wow Sylvia, this is stunning. I've never seen one like that either. What a great addition to your collection!

  2. I just purchased the same completed samplet of the Aug 1902 coronation of Edward. AIt is framed and it is beautiful. I got this at an estate in Washington DC. It is exactly the same, but done in more vibrant craftsman like thread I can send you a photo if you wish. S Miller

  3. I would love to see a photo of your sampler Susan.
