PAPA ca. 1880
This fascinating, very modern-looking historical stitching pattern in the form of a leporello with 40 rectangles is graphically exceptionally beautiful in its solid design. A balanced combination of alphabets, borders, patterns and motifs! Have you found the only row of numbers? And the word PAPA?
Presumably, this double-sided printed embroidery pattern (size of the original: 19 cm x 75 cm) of a French publisher was released around 1880. Referring to France would be the lacking letter “W” and the typical colour motifs (the Eiffel tower, altar cup). But it still remains a mystery as long as the cover is not found.
This turn-over pattern decorated a wall in the home of my friend Marina for years. Thank you so much for the opportunity to present it here.
