A sweet little miniature sampler only 5.5 by 4.5 inches. The tiny size gives it its appeal and charm. It could be stitched as a larger piece but the effect would be lost. Most likely the sampler is from England. I have found the school and a birth record of a matching Miss Sweeting nearby. A Board School is not the same as a "Boarding School". Board Schools were the first state-run schools.
Design Area:111 stitches wide by 92 stitches high.
Stitched Area: 5-1/2 inches (14.1cm) wide by 4-1/2 inches (11.7cm) high
Fabric size: 12 inches (29cm) wide by 11 inches (27cm) high this includes 3 inches (8cm) allowance on all sides for finishing or framing.
It would also look stunning on natural or overdyed linen. Aida can also be used but I don't think it comes in such a small size. The measurements given are for 40ct fabric. One strand of floss is used for all stitches and stitched over two fabric threads. The original was stitched on uneven linen but still measured 5.5 inches by 4.6 inches.
