Our Lucy Bugg PRINTED sampler looks so genuine that it is difficult to tell it is actually printed and not the real thing. Framed behind glass with 16-1/4" x 17-1/2" black and gold frame.
The proverb recorded on the sampler, complete with misspelled words and backward letters, as is appropriate for a young girl just learning to sew and read, states:
"It is in virtue that alone can give
the fleeting honour and bid glory live.
On virtue’s basis only, fame can rise
to stand the storm of age and reach the skies."
– Black frame with gold bead trim: 16-1/4" x 17-1/2"
– Sampler printed on archival paper.
– Behind glass to preserve the image
– Back is finished with craft paper and a sawtooth hanger.
