Woolwork embroidery, square piece intended for a cushion cover. Donors estimate is around 1850. Original colors have faded. The background colors on the original are red, dark red, blueish green. The chart is done in red and dark red only, because the blueish green looked horrible when applied to the chart. Probably the original shade was different from that on the DMC palette.

Variation on the Ranee Whatnot

Embroidered pelmet. The pattern is very clearly inspired by the Englishwomans Domestic Magazine pattern titled The Ranee Whatnot, but on overlaying the charts there's a clear difference in color choice, and the original pattern has been adapted to the required size. We don't have permission to show the original pattern from the only source I currently am aware of. Fair use allows to show a thumbnail only.

Pullan, Ladies Manual of Fancy Work: Golden Tapestry Patterns, are designed in three shades of gold, with a plain dark ground. Two of the gold shades are a sort of brownish yellow, the lightest always yellow silk. With claret, blue or green ground, this style of work is very rich and chaste looking. Borders for table-covers are especially handsome in it; and by care with the grounding it will correspond with any kind of furniture. https://archive.org/stream/ladysmanualoffan1859pull#page/30/mode/2up

Word sampler

Plan for a curious cross-stitch sampler made up of seemingly random words in alphabetical order. Charted designs on graph paper, cut out and affixed to a larger sheet of graph paper, to create a project layout. Good example of mixing fancy initial letters with a smaller, simpler font.

Narrow beading pattern

Narrow panel, probably for a towel rack. Originally the background was an allover bright red, but probably that was not included in the original pattern. A two color background, light in the centre and darker in the background, matches similar patterns, and blue contrasts better with the brown color range of the motif. Of course, suit your own taste.

We have no permission to include the original images (asked, but never received an answer). Pattern reconstructed, corrected and adapted by Sytske Wijnsma.

Neck pillow

Small decorative neck pillow

Artifact photos of a beaded and embroidered neck pillow circa 1900, not unlike modern air travelers' pillows in shape. Design is of grape leaves worked in white and green beads, on a red and gold ground worked in cross stitch. The pillow is finished with a red twisted silk cord, long enough to tie at the ends, and the reverse is plain light brown wool. Pattern looks familiar but has not been identified yet.

Victorian beaded necklace

Antique-Victorian-Mourning-Necklace-Pendant-Faceted-Glass-and-Brass-Seed-Beads/142632500878

From the item listing: A stunning, rare early Victorian loom seed beaded mourning necklace with pendant. Each decorative piece is connected by 8 strands of beads. The seed beads are black faceted glass and faceted brass. The brass seed beads being those that detail the motifs of flies/bees and outside edges of the connecting strands. They also form the laurel leaf motif on the pendant. The laurel leaves on this necklace would represent peace and triumph, and worldly accomplishment, while the fly, being a popular Victorian naturalist motif was a symbol of humility. In 1860 Victorians had a passion for wearing all things insects and this necklace is a fabulous example of this vogue.
