Re: embroidery piece c. 1900
If you mean was embroidery a common handcraft.Then the answer is yes.
Slovenian folkdress (which would have been worn on special occasions) typifies this skill.Some consider this style of cap to be "the" Slovenian head cover for women http://lenir.deviantart.com/art/slovenian-folk-costume-121397166http://lenir.deviantart.com/art/slovenian-folk-costume-121397166 Perhaps the most use of embroidery in that region is from the rich farming areas of Slavonia, Croatia. Here they actually used a thread that had gold powder pounded into the threads. http://www.miriammilgram.com/StefniCollection/sa_hrvat.htmhttp://www.miriammilgram.com/StefniCollection/sa_hrvat.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Croatian_national_costumehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Croatian_national_costume Some of our (my wife and I) favorites from Slovenia is Idrija Lace (Idrijska Cipka).We saw great examples at the Grand Hotel gift shop when we stayed their in 1997 on our way from Croatia to the airport in GermanyThis is a bobbin lace http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fws51jCEgxYhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fws51jCEgxY In fact on that trip Sue and I had a mission... to learn about the needle lace of the island of Pag, Croatia http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JuMHTNeUDrIhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JuMHTNeUDrI Robert Jerin Croatian Heritage Museum Cleveland Ohio
