Antique sampler: "Hélène Bonnefond"
REPRODUCTION SAMPLER CHARTED BY MURIEL BERCEVILLE - COUNTED CROSS STITCH
Muriel Berceville describes her work:
"Look for the personal details that have been added to this sampler, quite representative of a typical stitching exercise young girls would stitch in the mid 19th century. When charting this design, I tried to match the original colors and stay as close as possible to the original composition though the work of time makes it quite challenging."
