This sampler brings together a number of garlands (circles of flowers), cartouches (ornate frames in the shape of a scroll or shield) and crowns mostly dating from the early part of the 19th century. These provide lots of designs that can be used as decorative features around dates or initials. I have designed the alphabet and numerals to be very simple so that all the detail is in the garlands, crowns & cartouches.
