    About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:

    "Annie’s monochrome sampler has been a delight to reproduce. The little girl recorded that her sampler was stitched in Belvedere and completed in the December of 1887. She dedicated her sampler to her sovereign with the words “God Save The Queen”.

    Belvedere is a town in the south-east of London that lies close to the River Thames.

    The year of 1887 that Annie’s sampler marked was a very special year in Great Britain’s history. This year was the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria.

    Royal jubilees are an occasion to celebrate the life and reign of a monarch and are significant events which are celebrated around the world. Though the concept of the jubilee began in biblical times, today the term is most closely associated with the Royal Family and the ceremony and spectacle which the term symbolises."
