Jannet Douglas

1806

Hawick, Roxburgh

Description:

Jannet has created a sampler extremely similar to Eliza Henderson, with the same narrow pink house, lawn, fence and gates, and even "On Virtue". The primary difference is in her trees, not the drooping willow trees but one with upright generic leaves. Her signture is along the bottom and her familial initials (AD, MD, IH, WD, ED, MD, ID, ID, II, II, WI, IS, MD, EI, MI, II, BI, PS, MI, WI, AI, MG, MI, WS) are alongside the house. Jannet's flowering vine and central flower has a vibrancy that is missing from Eliza's. 

Size (W x H): 13 3/8 x 16 1/4 inches

Stitches: Cross, satin, chain, French knot, double running, outline

Media: Silk on linen

Genealogy:

John Douglas and his wife Isabel Hardy christened their daughter Jannet on 10 May 1795 in Hawick, Roxburgh. At this time we have uncovered no additional information.

Verse:

ON VIRTUE

VIRtUE is the chiefest beauty of the mind
The noblest ornament of huMankind
VIRtUE is ouR safeguard and our guiding star
That stirs up ReasoN wheN ouR seNses err
