THE ANGEL SAMPLER (circa 1625 - 1650)

THE ANGEL SAMPLER (circa 1625 - 1650) One of three known samplers containing a number of the same bands, the angel and tree, the scrolled "S" band, both of these on a gridded background, the deep "V" shaped arcaded band with acorns, and the scissor scroll "S" band (shown in band 13). One of the samplers is illustrated in
Brown & Wearden's "Samplers from the Victoria & Albert Museum" and the other is in Ewles' "One Man's Samplers: The Goodhart Collection". This particular sampler is also illustrated in Marcus Huish's book "Samplers and Tapestry Embroideries" fig. 5. The first edition published in 1900
states "that almost every line in this sampler contains Royalist Emblems". The "S" patterns were seen earlier on Italian needlework. It is highly probable that all three samplers were done under the guidance of the same teacher. The colors (salmon, blue and green), the many double running bands and the lack of filling stitch (such as satin stitch) point to this sampler having been made in the first half of the 17th century.
Formerly in The Essamplaire's collection.
As in the original, our reproduction is stitched over three threads of linen using double running, montenegrin, upright cross, detached buttonhole, spiral trellis, marking cross variations, and
darning (seed).
