“Winter Firs” by Violet M. Black

Ref: 4740

SOLD

A somewhat historical textile by Violet M. Black, sister to Nova Scotia handcrafts pioneer Mary E. Black. Mary Black was a master weaver and writer of "The Key to Weaving" in 1945. The book sold over 100,000 copies and remains an essential textbook for weavers. Online we were able to find a photograph of the frontispiece illustration of the Second Revised Edition of Mary's book which shows an identical example of Violet's "Winter Firs." The example we are offering here has a label stating it was hand-crafted by Violet M. Black. A wonderful piece of mid-century weaving by one of Nova Scotia's finest. 

Dimensions: 25.5"x30"
