Vintage Crochet KITCHEN Trim for Apron, Linens, handmade Novelty Lace
This is a pretty cool handmade piece, probably from the 1930-40s, maybe earlier.
It looks like it was meant to be part of the top of and apron. The crochet section that says 'KITCHEN' would be at the front of the waist, with fabric attached below for the apron, and fabric ties attached on the ends of the narrow crochet sections. Or maybe it was for some other type of kitchen linen.
The piece is 27-1/2 inches across, the KITCHEN section is 15 inches across and 3 inches thick.
Made of light ivory cotton, handmade crochet
