The following vintage book pages feature a beautiful embroidered autumn leaf design. The first of the pages describes the design as applied to an appliqued piano scarf. The second page illustrates the autumn leaf design created in a Mosaic embroidery or plush applique work on a piano scarf.
Here is a black and white clip art version of the autumn leaf design, extracted from the other elements on the page.
I scanned the original pages from Our Homes and Their Adornments by Almon C. Varney. The book was published in 1882.
New in my Etsy shop is a fifth variety set of printable vintage ephemera. This set includes a selection of vintage ephemera pieces from the late 1800s and early 1900s, scanned from my personal collection. With your purchase you will receive the printable pages (convenient for junk journal artists) and the individual images (convenient for digital scrapbook artists).
