Two Attractive Motifs in Crochet : This pattern contains directions to create both of the motifs pictured. The pattern does not contain a finished picture, just the charts. I located the 1939 advertisement pictured to illustrate. Their are two different full page charts given; one for a floral bouquet design and the second for a dove (or perhaps bluebird) in flight. The actual size of the motifs are not given, however, the advertisement shows them used in cloths so assume they are on the smaller side.
This is a Mail Order pattern, purchased through newspapers. The pattern was marketed as Needlework Arts Pattern No 1290 in 1939.
