From the Designer:

This sampler from 1862 is a bit of a mystery – I’m not even certain about the initials of the stitcher (is it HW or HVV?). Judging by the style of this sampler I would say it’s from the east of the Netherlands – most likely from the province of Gelderland. Although most samplers were worked by (young) girls, I have seen examples of samplers worked by adult women.

On the sampler we see at the centre a beautiful large red stag. Variations of this pattern have been around since the 1500s and can be found in old pattern books and many samplers stitched ever since. Stags were believed to trample upon snakes (evil) and that way destroying them. Because of this believe they were seen as a symbol of Christ.

The stitcher of this sampler worked many bouquets of flowers – there’s tulips and carnations, but there’s lots of roses as well. The large rose below the stag is especially quite spectacular.

On the right we see two men carrying a bunch of grapes – a beloved motif on Dutch samplers. They represent the two Canaanite spies, Joshua and Caleb, who in the old testament traveled into the promised land and brought back an enormous bunch of grapes, symbolising prosperity.
