Antique Needlework Book in Dutch Language from the 1880s. There are amazing patterns, stitches, and projects in silk and gold threads. Book measures: 8-1/4 inches X 6 inches. There are 89 pages of detailed information and illustrations. All instruction are in Dutch. The title is: Vrouwelijke Handwerken and literally translates in English to: Female Handicrafts. You can translate the text using an online translator page as I did.
This is book #10 in a series of what I assume are progressively more involved and intricate projects.
Under the title is further information for what is inside : " Teaching in different ways of Embroidery with silk and gold thread. There is Point-filigree " as well.
It also has this text on the front, translated from Dutch: "with more than 180 pictures between the text"
I have shown just a few pages with illustrations of projects, stitches and instructions. Soft bound book is in good antique condition noting there is wear to all edges of the book, covers are discolored around the edges and there is old tape holding them together. The spine is gone. All pages are intact. Some have never been cut open. So, this book was kept for over 100 years but likely not used much. All pictures and instructions are clearly printed
There are some fabulous projects. Exquisite embroidery of the most amazing flowers and foliage. Also shown are ribbon motifs, drapes. There are some amazingly detailed Spanish style embroidery, Renaissance work and more!
Just a few of the projects are scarves, pillow covers, waste basket, desk set, belts, sequin application, a stunning Spanish fan, purses, bolsters and more.
There is a large multi project fold out page in the very back. That shows 7 illustrations. Not speaking Dutch, I don't know if these are projects included in the book or advertisements for more books. There are some of those advertisements in the back as well.
There are no dates in the book. I am dating it to about 1880 due to the projects illustrated. This is an amazing book.
