1940s handmade crochet tablerunners, crochet bedspread project 'Nocturne'

  • $6500 CAD

This listing includes 3 long pieces of crochet, a couple balls of cotton and crochet hooks (3) and a pattern book: 'Bedspreads' no 186, dating 1942. The crochet pieces would be great as table runners or to use in your own diy project such as a cushion cover or fashion top / dress - or why not try to finish the bedspread that someone started to make all these years ago?
This project came from a recent estate sale - there were 3 long pieces of crochet work done, a pattern book (the page marked for the pattern ' Nocturne', 2 full balls of Clover crochet cotton (800 yards) and some remains of balls plus 3 crochet needles. There was a note inserted stating "worked on this cloth while working for a Mr Livingstone between 1939-1941. Signed M.B." The magazine dates from 1942 so that may have been a later addition to the 'collection'.
