    About the Sampler from the Designer

    "It is a rare to find family groups of samplers particularly those which span mroe than one generation. This smapler is one of a rare group of Irish samplers providing a tangible record of education recieved by Dorothy Walpole in 18th century Ireland and later her daughters Mary and Elizabeth in the early 19th century.
