Harriet Brouard Reproduction Sampler Harriet Brouard Original Sampler

An English sampler from the collection of The Scarlet Letter
The unique border of this sampler creates almost an optical illusion, shading diamonds and scallops from light to dark. It demonstrates how the simple cross stitch can be used to dramatic and highly artistic effect. Originally embroidered with fine two-ply worsted wool crewel yarns on linen the subtle color palette reflects the natural dyes used to pigment the yarns. The finished reproduction will be the same size as the original sampler. Only cross and back stitches are required.
