Thanks to Ebay I purchased a really beautiful stamped linen table runner to embroider that dates from the 1930s.  I was shocked that the original paper with the color suggestions was included.  The only problem I've encountered is that the brand of embroidery floss with the color #s is called Peri-Lusta, which I've never heard of before. 

Has anyone heard of this brand of floss?  Are they still in business?  I'd love to complete this vintage piece with the thread colors it lists.  If I can't locate the real deal (the Peri-Lusta), I'd at least like to locate a conversion chart for comparable colors in DMC to the Peri-Lusta colors.

Any help and info would be greatly appreciated! 

Thanks!
