Item details

Crocheting Doilies. Edited by Rita Weiss.

This vintage crochet doily pattern book contains a wide variety of lovely table lace designs in thread crochet. It is a softcover book with 48 pages with a stapled spine and was published in the U.S.A. by Dover Publications, Inc., New York, in 1976. Fully illustrated in black and white (photographs and illustrations).

In this book, Crocheting Doilies, Ms. Weiss included patterns from other books that were written by Carolyn Graeves in 1938 and 1941, and by E. L. Mathieson in 1944 and 1946, all published by the Spool Cotton Company.

This out-of-print book has general crocheting directions and detailed instructions for the following lace crochet patterns: Pineapple Luncheon Set, Pedigree Doily, Occasional Doily, Tulip Doily, Six-Pointed Pineapple Doily, Simplicity Doily, Caprice Doily, Irish Crochet Doily, Rose Bowl Doily, Jewel Doily, Pine Cone Doily, Water Lily Luncheon Set, Candy Dish Covers, Snowflake Dinner Set, Wigwam Console Set, Bread Tray Doily, Petal Console Set, Classic Console Set, Waltz Time, Butterfly Wings, Star Wheel Doily, Grapevine Runner, Baroque Centerpiece, Flower Tile Doily, Hawaiian Delight, Hospitality Console Set, Castles in Air, Filmy Charm, Periwinkle, Roman Candle, Mauna Loa Doily, Sundial, Day Dream, King's Ransom, Queen of the Garden, Vanity Fair, Star of India, Sweetheart Corsage, and Sunflower Runner.

Condition of book: Good condition with minor wear as follows: The binding is secure, and all pages are intact, except for page 9 that has a 1/2 inch tear near the bottom. No creases. The only marking in pen that I see is on the inside front cover where someone wrote her name in the upper left corner. There is also a pinhole in the upper left corner that goes through the entire book. The cover is shiny and shows some very minor edge wear. The back over shows some stains due to age. This vintage book has been stored in a clean, dry place, and has no odor.

Please see all photographs. Final sale. No returns.
