Hands Across The Sea Samplers - Hannah Coates 1848

A meandering pink dianthus border surrounds Hannah’s sweet pastoral sampler. A grand red brick house nestles between 2 large colourful birds perched atop trees. A shepherd and shepherdess with their Lancashire Heelers stand watch over a pasture full of sheep, lambs and deer. Two trumpeting angels signifying the word of God, hover over the house. Urns and vases of flowers abound.

What makes this sampler so endearing is the charming young lady, in her beautiful blue dress, frilly bloomers and feathered headdress, proudly waving a flag. The romantic within imagines that she is cheering dashing young soldiers as they parade by.
