Edward VIII: abdication sampler (I)
An Edward VIII Coronation sampler, worked with a six verse poem, crowned ER cipher, golf clubs, figures, facade of Hampton Court, boat and factories, completed by AMP 1936, unframed, 23 x 18ins
The website doesn't show the estimated or the realised prices.
Interesting to see how it reflects 'modern life' with the factories and golf clubs and so forth, when most coronation samplers from George VI and Elizabeth II focus on classic British/royal imagery such as beefeaters, crowns, coaches and other symbols.
