Doiley Press

Doiley Press

I found a beautiful Doiley Press this morning at the market. The vendor tells me she bought it from a house where the woman was going into a home, and that both she and her mother were great craftswomen. She claims she made this, but I am not sure I believe her - the background is printed, and the woman is cut from thick ply and hand-painted.

It still looks commercial to me, but definitely a bargain.

Hi Linda! ..... just catching up with a few blogs - I have moved to Newborough!
I love these doily presses - they are commercially made as I have a few of them - one day when I have finished unpacking, I will get a photo of them altogether.
Happy New Year!

Hello Chloe, I have just had a lovely time looking at all your apple blossom blocks - they are lovely and a great way to utilise a partly finished bit of fancy work.

Well, you two have just answered a question that has been in my mind since I bought the same doiley cover on eBay a few years ago! Was it a handmade original or not?
