It was this particular pattern that got me thinking about this. I picked up this pattern this morning for processing and said 'oh, another Rose design.
Alice Brooks 7098, Filet Crochet Square joins together to form a most appealing cloth. The Design pattern is vintage 1950.
This larger than typical Rose motif chair set was released by National Needlecraft Bureau in the 1940s.
Another Design pattern, Alice Brooks 7364 gives another version of the Rose. This one a lovely center motif with columns of pineapple leaves down the edges.
This Round Rose Cloth is vintage 1950s from Lily Mills. Whether worked in 17, 19, or 22 inches, it remains absolutely lovely.
The Rose Bouquet Place Mat comes to us, vintage 1950s, from the Spool Cotton Company. Simple in it's design, but devine.
Another Alice Brooks Design 7347, with a central rose motif and pineapples all the way around. (Don't even get me started on the pineapples!)
Do you suppose the heavy use of the rose is it's simplicity of design, or the way we associate the rose with romance and love, or the way the image can bring the bouquet of smell to our memory? Or, perhaps it's just the Rose is the most favored flower. What do you think?
Now, there are more filet crochet rose selections, as well as many others, should you like to look further ... MORE FILET CROCHET.
