Marianna Lignani- Anno 1825

Marianna Lignani- Anno 1825Marianna stitched this delightful sampler with the wonderful garden scene. The gentlemen are smoking long stemmed pipes and dressed in smoking robes. Informal dress, during this time period , was common for the middle class. They were imitating what, they thought, was going on with the elite. This entire scene could be from a possible print source. Mariana’s sampler is of Italian origin, fece or feci means “made by" in Italian.
The entire sampler is worked in cross stitch except for the woman’s hair, which is worked in straight stitches.
