amhistorymuseum During World War I, seven million Belgian people were cut off from food and supplies by the German invasion and British blockade. Belgian lace makers made "War Laces" like this one to garner support from buyers in Allied countries.
This round linen table cover contains the inscription "1915 Ardoye - Convent of the Holy Childhood of Jesus - Orphans" in the center. Ardoye (Ardooie) is in West Flanders, Belgium, in the area where the German army used poison gas for the first time on the western front.

The table cover is centered with bobbin lace. Bruges flower lace as well as tape lace and braided mesh techniques were utilized by the Belgian lace makers, who made this during World War I.

amhistorymuseum We miss #MadMen, too. But the story of Caroline R. Jones is fascinating. Still fresh out of college, she became the first African American to earn a coveted position as a copywriter at J. Walter Thompson, one of the nation's leading advertising firms. She went on to head her own firms and spearhead genius ad campaigns. Learn more about her on the blog: bit.ly/Adwoman (clickable link in profile). #Advertising #WomensHistory #AfricanAmericanHistory #Inspiration 2d
