Scottish Reproduction Sampler Kits

Their bold use of strong primary color, particularly reds and greens, distinctive architectural style (very geometric, often with strong vertical lines and French influences), heraldic peacocks (usually with seven tailfeathers), dogs, rabbits, illuminated lettering, and other symbolic motifs, make Scottish samplers quite a recognizable group. Archaic designs often appear on Scottish works one hundred years after having made their debut on English samplers. The arms of Scotland, the "mystery mansions," many groups of initials (usually family members), peculiar shaded mounds upon which often sit urns, fountains, Adams and Eves, or groups of odd little rabbits stacked up or all in a row, are specific elements of design seen on this regional group of samplers.

Samplers are in alphabetic order by the title or last name of the stitcher. To search the list for a word or phrase, type it in the box below and click the search button. For example, type ann to find all samplers with the name ann in the title. Type a to find all stitcher's last names or titles starting with the letter A.
