Description This sampler features embroidery in counted satin stitch, pattern darning, and double running stitch. The fineness of detail suggests that this sampler is the product of a professional workshop, made to record patterns or to show to prospective customers. Decorative bands like the ones on the sampler appear on tunics as widely spaced stripes, both vertical and horizontal.
Provenance Maurice Nahman; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1927 [mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
