SOLD Die Schonsten Stickmuster Aus Alter Zeit * £13 €20 $60 Shipping Included (Australia & New Zealand $65)

This is an oversized A5 hardbacked nearly 300 paged charted pattern book in virtually pristine condition.
In this book Irmgard Gierl has charted a number of motifs and pattern from early embroidery and samplers.
And she has documented their origins. I have to tell you that the text is in German - but if you are a pattern lover, this may not be a problem for you.
It's good to see how some of these patterns were used to decorate table-cloths - fromt eh 15th century at least - as well as pillows and bed hangings.
You can simply take the motifs and add them to a sampler of your own design
or stitch a standalone decorative piece and frame it simply for your own delight - or for a gift for a friend.
