ER ca. 1890
This school sampler signed by "ER" is packed: The two complete alphabets and the two rows of numbers – a must in German needlework lessons of the late 19th century – are framed by four different borders and corner motifs. The monogram is closely surrounded by the inner borders.
"ER" belongs to the large school sampler collection of my friend Margit Guerrein. To her many thanks for the chance to present a new piece here.
