An Exceptional Endeavour   Dilengence, Industry and Virtue   How Fragrant the Rose   On This Fair Sampler Does My Needle Write
Scotland has a long history of both professional and domestic embroidery and many samplers. Little has been written about them and this full-color catalog is a wonderful place to start learning about their art.   This catalog brings us beyond the purely personal pictorial appeal of needlework and into 300 years of social history, and more particularly a glimpse into the education and indoctrination of the feminine ideal through embroidery.   The rose, the emblem of England, multi-colored pansies, honeysuckle, lilies, marigolds and cornflowers appear in many artistic variations, some worked with intense complexity, others the naïve outgoing of an beginner’s hand. Lots of intriquing samplers that include flowers.   Witney publishes a sampler and historic embroideries full-color catalog each fall. This one contains samplers from both England and Continental region and is from the collection of Emma-Henriette Schiff Von Suvero born in Austria in 1873.
