    Georgian Sampler circa 1800 Dorothy Mounsey

    Description An exceptionally fine and complex sampler with Bargello embroidery worked by Dorothy Mounsey, daughter of John Mounsey, “ King of Patterdale”, (more information on the family below), measuring ~16 ˝ ” x 12” sight size with a total framed size of ~18 ˝ ” x 14”. In almost pristine condition, the sampler was reportedly stored unframed for over 200 years and retains its remarkably vivid and varied colors. Dorothy stitched her sampler in silks and fine wool with a great variety of stitches and motifs, multiple alphabets in varying fonts, number series, complex horizontal borders and motifs, and most exceptionally, a bottom section of very difficult Bargello embroidery to create geometric designs including diamonds and a variation of the flame stitch pattern. The sampler is in excellent antique condition with only scattered minor losses to the stitches. It has been sewn to acid-free linen over an acid-free backing and housed in a contemporary narrow burl frame. I am dating the sampler circa 1800. When I purchased this sampler several years ago it was one of a group of samplers completed by Dorothy Mounsey. Although I was only able to purchase this one I did save photos of the other samplers (see last photo). They are NOT for sale and shown only to “date” the sampler on offer. The photo shows an unfinished & undated Family Register sampler (showing Dorothy’s rather large family) and3 additional samplers completed by Dorothy in 1798 and 1799, one of which names Patterdale Hall. These were obviously completed by Dorothy prior to the current piece which is much more accomplished. Dorothy would have been about 16 when she completed this needlework. Dorothy was born at Patterdale in 1784 to parents Mary (Harrison) and John Mounsey. In 1818 she married John Thompson, a clergyman, and they were parents to 2 sons and 2 daughters. I will include a file of information on the Mousey family and Patterdale with the sampler. Patterdale Hall was the ancestral home of the Mounsey family. According to The Cumbrian Directory, “In 1648 they received the name ‘Kings of Patterdale’ after their brave foray at Stybarrow Crag against a group of Scottish raiders.” A fascinating history to go with a fine and unusual sampler.
