Notes to help you use this site:
The Known Patterns menu on the top left is split into countries. Clicking a country name will open its sub-menu of makers from that country. Likewise, clicking a maker's name will open a further sub-menu showing the known patterns produced by that maker.
In some descriptions you may see cross-references to other patterns / pages. These will be in the format country > maker > pattern and are not clickable, but can be found by navigating the menu as above.
Each maker's page has (or will have!) a brief description of the maker. Each pattern page has details of the pattern and, if available, an image taken from a catalogue showing the set / pieces as offered for sale. Below the pattern details text will be small images (thumbnails) showing actual examples of pieces from that set or pattern. Clicking any thumbnail image will open a larger version in a modal (overlay) box. The box will have navigation arrows at the bottom left, and a close box button on the bottom right. If you prefer you can click the left or right hand edge of a modal box image to navigate through the photos for that pattern.
Credits for images and information have been stated where known, but some information was sent to me without such credits, so if you spot something which has come from you and is not credited, or if the credit is incorrect, please drop me a line and let me know which page / image it is and if you would like to be credited and how.
The Mysteries menu item links to our Gallery which shows patterns which are awaiting identification. For these patterns the country may be known but the maker unknown. If you can help with evidence to identify these pieces please do drop me a line.
Any additional images of trinket sets or patterns for inclusion in the site would be most welcome. Please use the Contact Me link in the menu above to drop me a line, and I will email you back. I hope that you find the site useful and interesting!
