Unknown Russian

1879

Russia

Description:

A very unusual piece and much later than our usual focus, this sampler is a religious verse in Old Cyrillic, accented with an elaborate cross and floral border. You can see from the staining how the piece was mounted when we got it. Sadly, it is not signed, so we are unable to provide any genealogy or historical background.

Size (W x H): 22 x 24 inches

Stitches: Cross

Media: Silk on linen

Verse:

Translation, clockwise from top:

And now the wreath of the
truth prepares to me

In hope

you in

Which will be given me by the
Lord just Judging in that day
2 Timothy 4:8

The Christ in you,
on intended to
a hope of glory
heavens
Carinthians 1:27
Carinthians 1:5
