        While some see German embroidery, I see something like the Latvian
        bronze-ringlet-decorated shawls. Like these:

          They've named themselves after the possible name of the Prussian
          settlement now known as Mokhovoye (Wikipedia article here:
          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mokhovoye )
          So, it's really likely that it's the native Baltic sort of Prussian
          embroidery, rather than the German-Prussian variety.

          That isn't to say that it's not German-- the Teutonic Knights became
          involved with Prussia in the early 13th century in the Baltic crusades.

          ~Asfridhr, who won't simply be quiet.

          ... I am so excited to see this unfold. And it fits so well for me. I do some embroidery and would like to reproduce this pattern on possibly a gown/dress.

            imagination but I am persistent, and have a live friend at work from
            Stettin. How may pages are in your book?
