An embroidered sampler no doubt dating from some time during World War II as it features one of the best known slogans/catchphrases of the time, Dig For Victory. The top lettering says "Save vital shipping space" - it's an intriguing mix of the positive, bucolic and ominous. It measures 22cm x 37cm. Sold for nearly GBP85.00
