Product description

Knitting in Mercer-Crochet for your Home (c.1950s pattern book) plus knotted mats leaflet
 
A c.1950s vintage pattern booklet plus a pattern leaflet of the same era, of interest to crafters wishing to make table mats in crochet or by knotting, as follows:

(a) "Knitting in Mercer-Crochet for your Home" (J. & P. Coats Book No. 483: Paisley, J. & P. Coats Ltd., n.d., c.1950s). Booklet, 20pp including paper covers, measuring approximately 19.3 x 27 x 0.2cm (7.6 x 10.65 x 0.1in).  Includes instructions for making "Garter Stitch Place Mat with Darning", "Lace Luncheon Mats", "Fringed Cheval Set" and "Settee and Chairbacks", and other similar items; there are black and white photos of the finished items, shown with furniture and accessories by Heals of London in the contemporary style of the era.

(b) "Strutt's Candlewick Cotton: Table Mats made by Knotting" (Leaflet No. 2079: Manchester, English Sewing Cotton Company Limited, n.d., c.1950s). 4-page leaflet, measuring approximately 17.8 x 22.8cm (7 x 9in), with instructions for making small and oblong mats in "Half-Hitch Knot Stitch" and "Solomon's Knot Pattern"; the back shows examples of other designs in the same range of leaflets.
 
Both items are marked and discoloured (especially to the outsides) with wear commensurate with age including bumping and slight tearing / loss to the edges, creases and general reading wear, whilst there is some rust to the staples of the Coats booklet; both nonetheless remain fully legible throughout.
