Roses from A to Z

Roses from A to Z: Replica by Sabine Taterra-Gundacker

In France, for the marking of the clothes - in particular the fine bed linen - mostly large patterns were used and executed in delicate whitework.

Many French publishing houses, however, also produced alphabets in large cross-stitch versions, which enjoyed great popularity all over Europe.

This very large rose alphabet, probably published just before the century turn, still contains two smaller ABCs. A feast for the stitcher's eyes.
