Dutch Spot circa 1750's
A lovely spot sampler made in the second half of the 18th century in the Netherlands. Most of these were made at French schools, so called as they taught French lessons. These patterns were used on slippers, bags and other household items. This would have been at least the second or third sampler made by a young girl, probably at about the age of 12.
This sampler is stitched mainly with queen stitches, full queen stitches and half in one color and the other half in a different color, worked in different directions and some queen stitches are only over two threads in both directions. Some cross stitch is used as well as eyelet, flame and Italian cross.
