Have you heard of the Martha Madison Mail Order patterns? Although these designs were lesser known that the other Mail Order Companies -- such as Laura Wheeler and Alice Brooks, Martha was still a player in the 1950's market.

I've a number of these patterns in my collection. They seem to derive into the mid-1950's and center around the low 1000's in pattern number.
