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.

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.

A-GOOD-ANTIQUE-NEEDLE-POINT-CUSHION-COVER-FRONT-19th-CENTURY-CIRCA-1850-WOOL-112009018656

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.

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.
