Nuremberg HAG 1683

by Dorothee Kandzi

This sampler is owned by the Bavarian National Museum in Munich. The sampler shows the coat of arms and the monogram (HAG) of the Gruber family. The so-called flower baroque is typical of the Nuremberg samplers. Flowers also play a central role in this sampler. Even after so many centuries, the patterns still look fresh and cheerful.
