Crochet - Some Vintage Edgings

While looking for something else, I can across a major stash of vintage thread company booklets. How on earth did I accumulate all of these? This one was issued by the Lily Mills Company of Shelby, North Carolina. I can't find a publication date and I think there may be some pages missing.

Two pages of these and other edgings can be downloaded from my Flickr account.

How I love these edgings! Crocheting is beyond me - I've tried and tried. Sob... :)

So pretty.

They are lovely (and I love the presentation of the pictures too!) Obviously a great marketing tool back then - look what you can create with our threads! Of course you would want to try!

Wow, Is that impressive edging on the circular doily tatted or crocheted? If crocheted I would love to attempt it.
Thanks for posting!
