Long Dog Samplers

Stitch count: 315w x 312h

Model stitched on 18ct Silver Lurex Aida.

This design concentrates on the natural world and reflects the increased public interest which resulted from extensive exploration and the development of natural sciences during the 16th and 17th centuries. For example, the dodo, discovered in the 16th century on the island of Mauritius and extinct by the end of the 17th century, features on this design.

During this period bright colours came into vogue and reflected the growth in worldwide trade, especially between Great Britain and the Far East, when many different dyes found their way into the embroidery market. Notable examples include cochineal, brazil wood,woad, indigo and safflower.
