These two alphabets feature a number of Vierlanden style motives which were in common use from around 1770 to 1850. I have created two fonts to reflect this style. The Vierlanden is a rural district in south-eastern Hamburg. The name Vierlanden stems from the four ('vier') villages of Curslack, Neuengamme, Altengamme and Kirchwerderierlanden which have inspired the names of these two mini samplers.
These two mini-samplers are ideal for a small travel project, something easy to take on holiday for example. Being small these can also be a quick to make present for a friend. Alternatively these could be stitched next to each other on the same linen for a bigger design, and even combined with other mini samplers from the series.
