1930s vintage instruction manual for making needle lace LABRES EN MALLA text in Spanish language, printed in Mexico. Measures 11-12 inches X 8 inches.
Softbound 94 page book is 11-1/2 inches X 8 inches. Every page is done with illustrations of lace motifs done on net. The first few pages have basic instructions for motifs. There are no step by step instructions. Apparently you learn the basic motifs and put them into a larger project. You learn the basic stitches and then use them to make items illustrated.
All text is in Spanish.
There is a HUGE variety of designs. You could make: edgings, window curtains, bedspreads, alter cloths, table cloths, animals, flowers. Wonderful motifs with scrolling and curled designs among others
Book is in very, very good condition. It is strong with no tears or stains. Pages have yellowed somewhat. All text is in Spanish.
The last picture shows the back cover with illustrations of other publications available.
