Thank you, Margaret. I think the raised cord was added afterwards, as there are gaps where the stitches are not there, so I think the ones we can see were just to hold down the cord. The cords are well worked over in a thick bundle, and with the gaps on the under side, i think the cords would look very different if they had been worked onto the tapes - there would be many more stitches showing on the underside.
I could, of course, be wrong!!!!!!!!!!! I usually am!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) But this is how I see it!
I finely put three new pictures up, this is the back of the raised cordoned,
I hope you can see how this is made.
Gee!! You are quick off the mark, Margaret!!! but Thank You.
We are learning such a lot from these close up photos, and it is SO interesting to find out how things were done in days gone by. I think we get too caught up in what is "Correct" - and traditionally they did whatever worked, as they didn't have books (and the Internet) to tell them otherwise.
HiElzabeth I will do it tomorrow it is to dark right now.
It is very hard to tell it is so fine I pulled on it but can't make out, maybe with a good closeup we are able to tell.
if you like i can take a picture of the back
Yes please!!! I, too, wondered if it was added afterwards.
It looks like it is all done at the same time, it is so fine it is very hard to see,
if you like i can take a picture of the back of the heavy cordoned,just let me know.
Thanks for looking.
Whoever made this certainkly did nice even work. The wheels are nicely made.
