Extremely popular with schoolgirls – or more likely teachers – was the alphabet in this larger format. Therefore, it is often met on German school samplers. It can be found in many small pattern booklets in Leporello fold.
E. R. stitched two different alphabets and placed the "required" series of numbers in the centre. She decorated her two bands with Holbein stitches. She put little accents using the characteristic school sampler blue.
"ER 1906" belongs to the large schoolgirl sampler collection of my friend Margit.
