Where Your Home is Your Chateau !
BF340Product no.: BF340
This is a divine vintage French first edition of the magazine 'Mon Ouvrage'. It is dated November 1948 and was printed in the Rue Gazan, Paris.
It's pages are packed with sewing, knitting and embroidery projects all illustrated in fabulous detail. Some of the pages are illustrated in colour and are particularly charming.
The cover depicts an extremely elegant hostess. Her table is covered with a cloth embroidered from one of the patterns she found in the magazine. She has set it beautifully and she is now adding the final touch. The scene is tinted in gorgeous colours and would be fabulous framed.
The patterns would be fun to carry out, or the illustrations would make fabulous pieces for dêcoupage or other projects.
The magazine measures 31.5 cm (12.5 inches) high x 24.5 cm (9.75 inches) wide.
It is a wonderful record of the fashions and decor of the time and a mine of useful projects.
Another divine period French find from La Brocante Française!
