Husmoderns 235 mönster or "The housewife's 235 designs" is a 1931 craft book in Swedish, that seems to be intended for (upper-class) housewifes who had plenty of time to spend hand painting menus, place cards, candle shades and candles for their dinner parties... There are also designs for embroidered table cloths, bed sheet, underwear, childrens' clothes, handkerchiefs, and cross stitch upholstery.
I found the chapter on table decorating particularly fascinating. The authoress provides detailed suggestions for 27 different table settings for various occasions. When a Swedish miniaturist group decided to work on table setting projects in spring 2006, I knew at once that I'd like to do some table setting from this book. Sometime in the future I'd like to do more of them.
Here's my translation of the description in the book, or click to read the original Swedish text.
I based the table on a dining room design sketch by Atelier Martine, depicted in Authentic Art Deco interiors and furniture by Dover Publications. The plates are made from Fimo, using Lyn Latimer's instructions in LEN volume 2, issue 2. I got the flatware from some cast plastic sets I'd bought from J. Hermes years ago; I cut them apart and painted them gold. The flower bowls are bead cap type metal findings. I painted them dark blue and then drybrushed with a lighter shade.
