Pettersson Lace

Available: This item is not on stock and has to be re-ordered.

Item # 93973


From Wivi-Ann Nordstroem.

You get to know the history of this bobbin-lace, which was made from the family Pettersson at the beginning of the 19th century in the south of Sweden. At the first sight this lace looks similar to the Torchon-lace. The differences attracts attention at a closer look.
The author keeps oneself busy with this lace for a long time and shows us pictures from the original lace and her original use.
An extensive sample with 52 years old, worked off, partly very wide laces. Consistently colored technical drawings makes the rework easier. Lots of pictures. An enrichment for historical interested people and as collection for bobbin lace-makers.

144 pages, bound. Text in Swedish, German and English.
