Stephen & Carol Huber: 17th - 19th Century Needlework

German sampler dated 1799 from Huber

German - Adam & Eve
Needlework Sample
Dated 1799

This extraordinary unframed German sampler stands out from most, both in scale and its profuse number of classic design motifs. The dominate Adam & Eve motif is surrounded with symbolic ecclesiastical motifs, crowns, and domestic motifs such as a chest on stand, chairs, a lady spinning with a drop spindle, dogs, birds, flowers, ships, monkey, stag, etc. Inscribed within a cartouche held by two winged angles are the initials IDR and IRSP and the date 1799.

The bottom is stitched with several alphabets, set of numerals, and intricate pattern motifs.

Silk on linen 31 ½ x 18 inches unframed.
