My great-grandmother had started these crochet pieces probably before I was born. I barely remember her and the only memories I have of her, is that she was bedridden. I think I was about 5 at the time and she had stopped crocheting many years before that. As of October 2013, I am 49 years old so these motifs were made some time ago.
I have no idea what she may have meant these to be other than some type of doily or antimacassar.
She did however crochet very very tightly and I can tell when I hold these pieces, the work feels thick, tight and the stitches are evenly done too. Sure wish I could have known her when she was able to crochet.
I inherited a lot of her old booklets and books with patterns and I *think* this pattern is from one of her old 10-cent booklets called, "Radio and TV Scarves. " I am not certain though. I also have the unused balls of thread she was using to make these and they still have their wrappers intact.
