CHART PACK:


R. Werner 1907
Reproduction Sampler - Germany

REPRODUCTION SAMPLER CHARTED BY MURIEL BERCEVILLE - COUNTED CROSS STITCH 


The antique sampler pictured (above and top right) is an alphabet sampler that would serve as a template for the letters used for stitching initials on household linen. It also includes different variations stitches such as running stitch, backstich, halfstitches at different angles.

 

Most interesting is a series of 3 darning or needleweave stitches at the bottom of the piece. Here again, there are different variations over one and two threads, with increasing complexity.  


Young girls, at the beginning of the 20th century, would learn to stitch at school. They would reproduce series of letters and numbers on small canvases, using red thread. Blue and green ones are more rare but can be found in Germany, such as this one stitched by R. Werner in 1907.
The modern reproduction (lower right) was stitched using an overdyed blue silk thread.


A faithful reproduction of an antique alphabet, charted by Muriel Berceville.
