Midwinter Red Domino

“Red Domino” was designed by Jessie Tait for Midwinter c 1956.

It was one of the most popular of the “Stylecraft” shapes by Midwinter (1953 + ).

The design made a feature of the rim on the Stylecraft shapes. It was so popular it was produced in a number of variants and colours over a number of years.

A hand painted design – It is one of those classics that just screams 1950s to me. Its interesting as well that anything with polka dots seems to be really popular – combine that with red – and you have a highly desirable combination.

It was so popular that 20 Paintresses were employed on this pattern alone.

Other colours released in the Domino design were Blue Domino 1956, and a Green (made in less quantities). There is also a Black Domino which is very rare and hard to find.

Red Domino continued to be used as a variation on the “Fashion Shape” and was also adapted for the “Fine Shape”.
