It was pretty common during the depression, I believe, also. It’s not something you’d want to do on a general basis, since the patched string never sounds as good as a new string will.

I’ve used it myself when stringing Pleyel chromatics for decorative purposes (pedal harp strings aren’t long enough), but as long as I can afford a new string, I’d always opt for that for that instead for an instrument that’s going to be played.
