c1915 Kelim-Arbeiten by Marie Neidner
Circa 1915 Kelim-Arbeiten by Marie Neidner, published by Otto Beyer, is a small softcover book with 50 pages. “Kelim” is a counted thread/needlepoint technique that resembles knitted stitches worked on coarse fabric or canvas, which was very popular for home decor and accessories at the turn of the century. Most patterns resemble Oriental rugs or tapestries.
Illustrations of stitches, closeup of projects and rooms featuring the needlework are on every page. The last few pages include a wonderful listing of other needlework books in the Beyer’s Handwork collection which were available at the time. German text, but the charts are clear and easy to read.
Book is in good condition; cover is worn, especially along the edges, but the pages are very good, as are the fold-out sheets.
