G-AS004 Dutch needlework sampler
A needlework sampler also known as “pronklap” to showcase the makers sewing and embroidering abilities. Usually these were made during sewing lessons that were given to girls after schooltime. This sampler is probably the work of years. Most of these samplers were long and narrow; this one has three narrower strips side by side and had metal rings so it could be hung on a wall.
