This beautiful sampler is recreated from an historical sampler dating from 1808. The original is displayed in the German Sampler Museum in Celle and was worked in that area of North Germany.
The same motifs are repeated in many European samplers with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden beneath the Tree of Knowledge entwined by the serpent. Above is the three stems of carnations, a symbol of happiness. The wreath carried by angels with a crown symbolises eternity. On the left are flowers, a crowned heart denoting love,Justice, apple basket showing plenty and an alcove demonstrating the housewife's ability. On the right are flowers, the crucifixion and God's lamb symbolising resurrection.
Permin of Copenhagen is a long established company known for its quality.
