What a wonderful coincidence! The first photo shows the parrot on the 1704 German sampler that I am currently charting, the second photo shows a similar parrot on a German sampler of 1734 that I just bought at auction. The third photo shows some text on this sampler and I will need my German friends to help me interpret this. There are other names and phrases scattered about this sampler that I would be grateful for assistance in interpreting.
Turning the Vinciolo birds rightside up on Ann Lawle is definitely the way to go, but you understand that I had to follow the original. Elizabeth Harborne's signature need not be upside down for that matter.
