Elizeabeth Bordman, 1836

For sale is a cross stitch sampler chart, Elizeabeth Bordman, 1836. Elizeabeth Bordman showed her love of brilliant color in this eye-catching red house and rose sampler. The rose has been a symbol of love since the early Greek and Roman times in which the goddess Aphrodite’s wounded love Adonis stained the rose with his blood. In early Christian lore, the five petals of the rose were associated with the wounds of Christ on the cross.

Stitch count 205 x 173. The model was stitched with Needlepoint Inc silks on 36 ct Lakeside Pecan Butter. A conversion to DMC has been provided. The original antique is held in the Victorian Rose Needlearts collection
