this was an ebay purchase and came in very bad condition. It reeked of damp,was covered in mildew and has rotted away in one corner. The dark shadow above the Abbey is mildew I couldn't remove as I didn't want to leave it soaking too long in case I was left with nothing and the surround covers the rotting corner. I hope I have saved it for another 50 years. It is a coronation sampler and the Queen can be seen sitting in the coach. All the damage was fully described when I bought it but I do like a challenge
Another Gold Coach coronation sampler, beautifully embroidered, sadly not by me and I have'nt found a frame to fit yet so it is displayed on a board. Shows the horses and coach leaving the Palace and heading to Westminster Abbey. Some samplers come, like this one did with no fabric left outside the embroidery and one I bought was the size of a tablecloth with the embroidery the size of a doiley in the middle.
