    Very interested in this as am researching Sangorski & Sutcliffe – does the caption in the actual book specifically mention F. Sangorski & G. Sutcliffe. The National Art Library in England is under the impression this book was published c. 1880 – this was before they met !

    I think that this could be interpreted in openwork on Linen very prettily…. I wonder if any of the Bluedorn girls would give it a try?

    Good idea!
