Collecting Hand Crocheted Pot Holders In Dress Designs

Adorable Vintage Crocheted Pot Holders

Here is a darling collection of hand crocheted pot holders of little girl's dresses. These precious kitchen textiles would not last a day in my shop.
Dress designs were introduced in the late 1940's.

There are lots of gals who love collecting pot holders and favor hanging a variety of styles on the wall. The more unique the style, the more the price for them goes up a bit. I have seen similar pot holder dresses sell for $10.00 to 16.00 each.

For more about pot holders, be sure to read Barbara Mauzy's wonderful book, "Gay & Gifty
Pot Holders",
Schiffer Books.
