AM THE BREAD OF LIFE
embroidery on perforated card 210 x 60 mm, stitched on dark blue silk
Victorian ladies taught their
daughters embroidery and most young girls were expected to produce a
canvas to show their skill with the needle. Most markers employ small sheets of
perforated card which was available
from staitioners of the day, either in plain sheets suitable for cutting to
size or ready-made with a decorated border.
Embroidered bookmarks were mainly produced from 1850s till the end of
the century where they had been largely
superseded by other types, particularly of woven silk or paper.
