Vintage Ecclesiastical Design 514

The IHS is the most common Christogram in Western Christendom and denotes the first three letters of the Greek name of Jesus, iota-eta-sigma. The Greek letter iota is represented by I, and the eta by H, while the Greek letter sigma is in its final form, represented by S.
This design is from The Embroidery Pattern Catalogue, a publication offering iron-on embroidery transfers that was published in the mid to late 1800s by the Thomas Brown & Sons company of Manchester, England. Many of those traditional Christian patterns were hand drawn reproductions of designs from the 13th and 14th centuries, a period when ecclesiastical art, especially the stunning English needlework, was in its glory.
When digitizing for machine embroidery we attempted to stay as true to the original design as possible.
