Item details

This vintage crochet book is a great find! What a wonderful addition to your collection of resources for your shop or studio.

The book came from a local estate and has dozens of beautifully detailed crochet and embroidery patterns and directions inside.

It also contains a lot of advertisements for items priced at "6 shillings" - this was printed and sold in London. It's not dated but based on the styles inside, we estimating it to be from the 1920s.

We love the red and white design of the cover and the messy, tattered and distressed condition of the book. It is very old and it fair condition.

The cover and spine are very messy and spotted, lightly soiled and frayed, especially around the edges and corners. Inside the pages are clean, but there is a faint smoke scent to the pages.

Measures 5.5 x 9 inches. Ships via medial mail (2-10 day delivery) in the US.
