Round Empire Crocheted Doily Pattern, Vintage 1940s from Lily Mills

Empire Doily No 7 : This pattern contains directions to crochet the doily shown. This design, vintage 1940s from Lily Mills, is called Empire No 7. This would imply there are at least 6 other Empire Doilies that I'll have having to keep my eyes open for ! This piece, round of course, has quite a unique circular design, not cobweb, not lace, perhaps somewhat like a wheel with spoke edges. The crocheted doily, worked in two strands of complimentary color, measures a medium 14 1/2 inches when completed.
