Victorian dog


Delightful little embroidery pattern of a Spaniel resting on a luxurious cushion.

The original chart was just a fragment of an hand painted embroidery pattern dating from around the 1800’s.

Queen Victoria was very fond of her dogs, and canine companion were a favorite embroidery motif of the time period.

Here is a little rhyme the queen wrote for her favorite Spaniel- Dash.
“Here lies Dash, the favorite spaniel of Her Majesty Queen Victoria, by whose command this memorial was erected. He died on the 20th December 1840 in his ninth year. His attachment was without selfishness, his playfulness without malice, his fidelity without deceit. Reader, if you would live beloved and die regretted, profit by the example.
