Now that it is in the public domain, Georgia Seitz has posted a PDF of Tina's book at http://www.georgiaseitz.com/public/tinafrauberger/fraubergerschiffchenspitze1921.pdf. This is motif #52 on book page 54, and there is a lovely doily showing the same motifs combined on page 55.

Birgit has kindly shared the pattern here - for other patterns, see her pattern index is here, and/or her blog here.

Then I made another one, with normal rings instead of Josephines. I also added picots - apparently those picots I am constantly removing have to come out somewhere. Central picots were a little too long, so the central star is not as nice.
Both of these really will need to be pinned out to block perfectly symmetrically; the chain lock joins on long picots tend to curve a little.
No link; can't find it online to show a picture of the cover.

Robin has generously shared this pattern on her free patterns page here (she also sells patterns, so check out the etsy link from her page for other designs). I greatly admire the clarity of her diagrammed patterns and am reading her tutorial on using Inkscape to create diagrams, so with luck I might eventually be able to share some.

When I looked the book up on Amazon I discovered it's now out of print. Hopefully it will be reprinted soon as the used copies are quite pricey and it's a nice little book - her descriptions of different techniques are good, and while there are not a lot of patterns, there seems to be one of pretty much everything - a snowflake, a round motif, a heart (included in my Feb 14 post), a couple edgings, doilies, celtic tatting, covered egg ornament, etc.
