Antimacassars

I learned a new word! Antimacassars are the things that go on the backs and arms of chairs to protect the upholstery from wear. Macassar was an oil-based hair product popular in the 19th century.

 Crochet Antimacassar 

 These were crocheted in the 1930s or '40s. I'm looking forward to incorporating them into quilts.
