MOSAIC #18, 6″, Light

Today’s Block

The name gives this block away as one of the Ladies Art Company mosaic blocks. Mosaic #18 is from the 1897 catalogue (#346). Hall also used this name in 1935 for a multi-coloured version similar to ours.

Original Ladies Art Company Pattern Tile

Other names include: Mosaic #1 (Nancy Cabot), which is terribly confusing as she also called the Empire Star block Mosaic 1. Nancy Cabot also used Old Poinsettia which is appropriate considering the fast approach of Christmas, while Nancy Page used Spinning Stars.
