Catherine Elisabeth Masson 1826 Reproduction Sampler
REPRODUCTION SAMPLER PATTERN, BY Couleur Tourterelle


This early 19th century, with a representation of Adam and Eve in paradise in the center, is of Flemish (Belgium) origin and is part of the personal collection of Meriem Chauvet of Couleur Tourterelle . The reproduction cross stitch chart strictly reproduces every stitch of the original sampler (see last photo).

 

Of particular interest is the bird in a cage on the right, with wedding rings above its head, a symbol of marriage. Indeed as explained by Joke Visser in her book “Oefenstof” dedicated to Dutch Sampler samplers,  there is a saying in Dutch,"Onvrij maar veilig", i.e. "Not free, but safe", meaning that, while it deprives of liberty, marriage brings security. 

 

Other interesting features in the sampler are objects of domestic life, including a cradle, and other elements refering to the Catholic faith.

 

The stitcher was already 16 when she completed this work - possibly explaining why she had marriage in mind. Interestingly she stitched two other samplers two years later, reusing a number of motifs (patterns being rare at the time).

Original Sampler (last photo) worked in cross stitch, using silk over 2 fabric threads. Size 10 x 7 ½ inch (25 x 19 cm). 

Reproduction Sampler stitched using Soie d’Alger silk from Au Ver à Soie (AVAS), with cross stitches worked over 2 fabric threads on 40ct linen. Size 10 x 7 inch (25.5 cm x 17.5 cm).

A cross stitch pattern by Couleur Tourterelle.
