Details

  • Catalogue text

    Sampler fragment with three bands of cross stitch, and one band embroidered in patern darning running stitch, with diamonds and half-diamonds, lozenges and two stylized flowers. There is also the beginning of two designs worked in double running stitch, some of it in two shades of blue.

    In one corner of the textile are the small remains of a blue and white checkered fabric, probably woven from flax (blue) and silk (natural). There are also traces of sewing stitches.
