Antique Graphics Wednesday – Advertisements, Embroidery Design & Anti-Slavery Book

Welcome back to
Antique Graphics Wednesday!
Yes, I know today is not Wednesday, but on Wednesday I had a memorial post about my friend, Leisha Kelly and I really didn’t want to detract from that.

So, today I’m featuring more images & advertisements from my stash of 1800’s Peterson’s Magazines.

If you like any of them and would like to use them for crafts or scrapbooking, just right click to save and print.

This first one is actually some gift tags created by Megan @ Lilac & Lavender, using my Pear’s Soap antique advertisement.  It’s such as pleasure to see these advertisements being put to such a lovely use!

She has also created more gift tags from other antique images, as well as her own designs,
based on antique advertisements, so be sure to visit her blog to save and print them.
This is such a cute advertisement for a fluting machine that would have been used to produce ruffles and flounces for the trimmings on garments.

This next graphic from the magazine was a design for embroidery.  It always amazes me the amount
of work that was put into making household and personal linens so lovely.

And although not highly graphic,
I really appreciate the historical value
of this advertisement for an
anti-slavery book being sold 
at the time these magazines were published.
