Pattern book for 16 designs (reduced in size) of hand-stencilled friezes by William McLaren and Co., Glasgow; with price list.
"This book of reduced designs, from our Hand Stencilled Friezes, is issued to meet the increasing demand for hand work--as against machine prints--at prices equal to the printed goods. These designs (scale 1 5/8 inches to the foot) are facsimile of the friezes, and we hope that they will fulfill the purpose of large pattern books. These friezes are stocked, stencilled on an extra stout cream coloured cartridge paper, 30 inches wide, as it is found that this ground goes well with almost any of the shades of silk fibres, ingrains, &c. &c., on the market."--Leaf [1].
