Juliette Lévêque 1913 Reproduction Sampler


Here is a perfect example of a school sampler as practiced in France at the beginning of the 20th century. It is worked in red woollen yarn on canvas and signed “Juliette Leveque née le 11 décembre 1913”. Based on the date of birth of the stitcher, it was probably completed around 1920. Cross stitch was not taught per sake, rather young girls were introduced to stitching initials they would later use to identify items of houselinen that would constitute their "trousseau" once they got married.


Notice that interestingly, and well into the 20th century, the little cross featured in front of the alphabet, named « Croix de par Dieu », is still featured before letter A. The practice goes back several centuries earlier, with the cross always preceding the letters of the alphabet, to remind the child to make a sign of the cross before reciting. 


This sampler is part of the personal collection of Meriem Chauvet of Couleur Tourterelle . The reproduction cross stitch chart strictly reproduces every stitch and matches all colors of the original sampler (see last photo).

Reproduction Sampler stitched using DMC Stranded Cotton, with cross stitches worked over 1 fabric thread on 32ct linen. Size 3.5 x 3.7 inch (9 x 10 cm).
As the design only features full cross stitches, you can stitch it on any fabric of your choice, including over 2 fabric threads, or on Aida fabric.
