2023-12-10 New Publications: Table settings, a beaded bag, and an embroidered dragon between flowers


N-HW003 Den Haan & Wagenmakers – Beaded bag No. 1
Pattern for a knitted bag with beading, also suitable for cross-stitch. A parrot sitting on a fence looking down at a dog. The top of the bag has a floral border which can be used independently. The bottom of the bag is a floral design with three red flowers, and blue leaves on a lighter blue background.
The middle pattern has an error; the pillar behind the dogs tail does not run all the way to the bottom. Also, the mountain in the background is cut off rather abruptly. Probably this is an adaption of a larger pattern, that has been cropped to suit the dimensions of the bag.
From the Collection DHW, “35 Breipatronen van antieke kralentassen”, published with permission of Wim Wagenmakers en Rudolf den Haan, edited and charted by Sytske Wijnsma.

A-MH165 Musée des Ouvrages de Dames – Dragon and flowers border
Printed pattern on cream paper. Pattern is printed horizontally, but should be used vertically. A small dragon among flowers and leaves. Some printing errors: colors overlap where they shouldn’t, left and right of pattern don’t match, several areas left unprinted or printed with the wrong colors. The chart is corrected as far as possible.
