Description

<p>These two pineapple pattern doilies were likely to have been made by my great-grandmother, Alvina Billig in 1946 or after.&nbsp; The smaller one is slightly tan in color and measures 7 inches across.&nbsp; The larger doily is made in a thicker crochet thread and measures 8.5 inches across.</p>
<p>The pattern is in the book "Featuring 14 New Pineapple Designs" from Clark's O.N.T. J. &amp; P. Coats, book no. 230 issued in 1946.&nbsp; Note the price printed on the book - 10 cents!&nbsp; The pattern is doily no. 7768-A and is on page 6 of the pattern book.&nbsp; The book is bent back to this page, for easy access while making the doilies.</p>
