I have a piece of embroidery that dates back to 1790 Cranbrook
It is a map of the British Isles in very fine stitching Looks to be by Sarah Roust, Ann Smith's School, Cranbrook 1790.
Nothing here in Canada dates back that far. My mother who passed many years ago collected antiques and this lovely piece is in a frame that also looks to be very very old.
I was wondering if anyone there had any records of Anne Smith's School or Sarah Roust?
This piece is very special to me and I think it might well be a real find for a collector of fine things too.
Any help you can offer from the records that might be in your town hall would be much appreciated.
If you want to see a picture of this piece I can e mail along.
