Museum of Civilizations originated from the museum of
folkart in Berlin and the European department of the Ethnological
Museum also in Berlin. Today the collection comprises
altogether about 35'000 textiles and among them are
around 1000 samplers.
The article deals with the alterations of samplers in the second half of 19th c. and their siginificance until the first dedcades of 20th c. At this time it was most important to educate young girls to nobel women and to virtues like order, cleanness, economy, decency. It was also most significant to accustom the girls to discipline and to their future role in the family, church and state.
The samplers from 1875 until around 1900
compared to earlier ones show:
on canvas, 1883,
on canvas, 1890,
