Tina Frauberger's motif #52

Another motif from Tina Frauberger's book "Schiffenspitze" published in Dusseldorf in 1921.  This is a sibling to motif 53 which I posted in April; they have the same center but a different round two.  I find the shape surprisingly compelling, even with slightly askew blocking.

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


  1. What a difference the 2nd round makes ! Beautifully tatted as usual :-)

  2. A good example of how simple designing can be. Both are beautiful. Thanks for the link. I've really admired the pieces you've done from the book. I see that there are a number of patterns that would offer some good practice for split chains.

  3. It's so pretty! Made my look up the book to see what else was in there. Your tatting is beautiful.

  4. That looks awesome to me!!! :)
