Embroidery pattern for dark green wallet or clutch

Journal des Demoiselles

Single sheet, with a dark green oblong and three parts of embroidery, intended to be folded over and the bottom sides sewn to the middle, with the top remaining as flap. The embroidery is couched gold cord, with what looks like mostly applique of two types embroidered or printed ribbon. Such items were common in earlier ages as portefeuilles. The Rijksmuseum has one from Michiel de Ruyter, with beads and embroidery, from the seventeenth century. Still useful as wallet or clutch or holder for a smartphone.

IHS Chair seat

Journal des Jeunes Personnes, 2, Rue St. Dominque St. Germain

Beautiful chair seat design, with a cross of flowers and in the center an IHS motif - In Hoc Signo. That motif could of course be used separately as well. Large pattern, partially shown (chart is complete) printed on cream paper. Design by Maison Thorel, 153, Rue St. Denis, Paris. The Journal des Jeunes Personnes generally had simpler patterns suitable for younger needleworkers, but this is quite a piece of work.

Japanese colored drawings

Eight colored drawings of Japanese origin. They show mythical air spirits playing musical instruments. The drawings were photographed while still in protective sleeves, which is why the background color is uneven. The faces and bodies of these musicians are done in very light grey, whereas the clothes and other accessoires are boldly drawn and colored.

Handpainted pattern on cream paper, bottom part of the pattern has been cut off. Very probably Heinrich Kuehn or their successor Vereinigte Stickmuster Verlag. Beautiful yellow flowers and green leaves. Some errors in painting have been corrected by overpainting with cream paint that has discolored some in the course of time.

1911 Avril No. 124, Photo Edition

French fashion magazine, 36 pages excluding covers, advertisements and two separate colored plates. Page 16 and 17 are combined to one. The cover and advertisements were detached and may be in the wrong sequence. Many fashion illustrations from the upper class ladies dresses, childrens dresses, jewellery designs, toilet accessories and a silver tea service. Some handbags and the big hats of that era. Designs from famous designers such as Redfern and Poiret. Dresses very similar to those in the film Titanic. No publisher mentioned, possibly some pages are missing.

Journal des Demoiselles, Boulevart des Italiens N. 1

Supplement from the 17th year of Journal des Demoiselles. A round pattern printed on cream cardboard. A red border with a gold and black chain design, and the center with blue and brown curlicues outlined in black and gold. The background color was not given but might be white. The pattern looks symmetrical but isn't. It would be suitable for a round decorative pillow cover or table center. It's probably too large for a hot plate if done in beadwork.

Beaded bag No. 1

Den Haan & Wagenmakers, Edam

Pattern for a knitted bag with beading, also suitable for cross-stitch. A parrot sitting on a fence looking down at a dog. The top of the bag has a floral border which can be used independently. The bottom of the bag is a floral design with three red flowers, and blue leaves on a lighter blue background. The middle pattern has an error; the pillar behind the dogs tail does not run all the way to the bottom. Also, the mountain in the background is cut off rather abruptly. Probably this is an adaption of a larger pattern, that has been cropped to suit the dimensions of the bag.

Eight traditional German maxims

Eight single sheets, probably from one booklet, printed in red and green on a green grid. Each has a traditional maxim, about food (give us today our daily bread, clean kitchen and good wine cellar means a tasty meal, a happy face is the best dish, drink and eat and do not forget God), about the clean linens (grown in sun and wind and bleached on green grass it lies now in the locker as pride for the German housewife), about the house (sweet home is happiness only), about patience (do not hurry, good things will wait), and about work (work is an ornament to people - blessing is the reward of effort). Some damage to the bottom of a few patterns, but missing parts have been reconstructed.

Das Spitzenklöppeln

Anleitung an vierunddreiszig Mustern die Klöppelarbeit gründlich zu erlernen.

Eugen Twietmeijer, Leipzig

Although the text is in fraktur script and probably not an easy read (as well as German) the illustrations are fabulous, in clear black and white the lace pattern, and an engraving of the resulting lace. This edition is the third, indicating that the book must have sold well at the time. And with every new edition new patterns were added. No separate pattern sheets, but with copy-paste-print that shouldn't be a big problem. Some nice illustrations of antique lacemaking tools as well.

Bury St. Edmunds Cathedral Kneelers

Selection of photos

Forty-eight photographs of kneelers in the cathedral of Bury St. Edmunds. This is a small sample of the phenomenal collection of embroidered kneelers in that church. All were embroidered in the 60s, two for each parish, and there's around 500 parishes in that diocese. Each has the name of the parish, a symbolic representation of the parish or a more general religious motif, to a blue background divided in three parts by a gold and red Y. See https://parishkneelers.co.uk/churches/suffolk/bury-st-edmundsbury-cathedral/ for smaller images of 81 of them.

Two leaves from an incunabel book

Two separate leaves from a very old book. The black letters are printed, the initials are handpainted afterwards. To make the painting easier, little letters were printed in the empty space showing which initial should go where. It appears to be a book about religious laws. The leaves were numbered 1 per leaf, not as we now do an odd number on one side and an even number on the other.

Victorian beaded and embroidered square

Chart only. A magnificent square embroidered frame, in the middle a rather small bouquet. This pattern occurred on two ebay items, but we could not secure permission from either seller to show the originals. On one the background was two shades of purple, on the other two shades of red, and the bouquets were placed slightly differently. This pattern has been reworked so the frame is symmetrical and the bouquet has been adapted to fit properly. We've picked two shades of blue as background; feel free to choose your own.

Victorian beaded wall pocket

162220947 victorian-gothic-wall-pocket-black

Victorian wall pocket with floral beadwork and beaded initials, on black velvet, lined and backed with red wool fabric. Wall pockets were made of various materials, wood, ceramics, metal, leather, and fabric. Sherlock Holmes used a "Persian slipper" to keep his tobacco in, possibly also as a wall pocket. Dutch farmers may nail a wooden shoe that's too badly worn, to the wall of a barn to serve as wall pocket. This wall pocket is covered in fabric, and possibly backed in wood, as it is still straight and firm after decennia of use. The pattern is a tracing, and the "toe" is a bit of a guess, since we had access to images only and not to the original item. Width can be adapted if you want the toe narrower or wider.
