This fascinating page from “The Young Ladies’ Journal” dates to 1881-1884 and is page 441 of this edition. The projects include a newspaper stand, a toilet cushion, a border of embroidery, a brush pocket and a mandolin work pocket. These items have some detailed instructions on the back of the page. There is a further design detail for the toilet cushion and a shoe pincushion. Across the bottom of the page are some charming designs for fancy ball dresses for children. This is held within a cream mat with a protective clear cover for the coloured image. The condition is very good for age. This is a delightful representation of projects for the industrious needlewoman of the era. This would be lovely hung on a wall and if desired, enhanced with a further frame. Size with mat 17.25 ins (43.8cm) x 13 ins (33cm). Weight 282 grams.
