Extremely fine and rare early 19th century hand embroidered colonial sampler from Mexico.
A needlework sampler is a type of hand embroidered panel, usually stitched by young schoolgirls to demonstrate their level of proficiency. Given the overall quality of this example, the proud weaver responsible for producing this marvelous sampler must have raised the bar amongst her peers. Hand embroidered silk in natural green, yellow, cochineal red, indigo blue and natural white is woven into a very fine linen panel with a gauze like handle. Along the upper edge The Sacred Heart of Jesus is surrounded by an aura of hand woven radiant light. In the middle section a large botanical urn is flanked by birds, butterflies and the weaver's initials, 'A. D. Along the bottom edge, the weaver offers further evidence of her expertise. She introduces a complex intertwined gauze weave surmounted by five roundels, each in a unique macrame pattern.
Backed, stretched and professionally mounted on fine linen.
Dimensions: 28 inches x 17 inches.
Condition notes: minor soiling. Weave is complete and intact. Unrestored, original.
