These fine works from the hands of young ladies of the upper classes were often presented in the living rooms after completion. They were evidence of the taste and skills of the needleworker and the spirit of time. In the early stages of courtship, a potential candidate for a marriage was able to estimate the age of the gentlewoman.

Josepha has been executing her sampler with extremely fine cross-stitches in fine silks on fine uneven fabric: two flower borders, five alphabets, two groups of numbers. The billing birds in the wreath of roses form the main motif. At the right and left of it, she placed symbolic romantic motifs of "domesticity" and "remembrance". A textile treasure for show!
