Footnotes

  • The first needlework in this lot bears several paper labels to the reverse. Of these, one typed label states that, during framing in 1987, the probably original paper label below it was found. The 19th Century label reads 'Mary Ann Nicholson. Her work was drawn on April 20th 1821 at Becklington School, Fairneychesters.' Ferney Chesters is in Northumberland.
