A sampler embroidered in red, blue, and occasionally brown on an undyed linen ground. Many motifs include a deer, double-headed eagles, a crown, carnations on a scrolling vine, grapes on a scrolling vine, and floral or tree motifs, botehs, Persian stars and various birds. Worked from two sides resulting in two mirrored halves.
