Antique Society Silk Doily Victorian Embroidery Spider Mum Flower
A group of five hand made Irish Carrickmacross needle run doilies on tulle net. The shape of the doily is rather a square with pointed corners. A motif of clovers embellished the tulle of the center area. Each of the points are filled with needle run stitches, not all of the same design.
Picot stitches trims the outside edge of each of the doilies. As doilies are hand made, I found they vary slightly in size.
Four measure about 8" square. The fifth is 7-1/4" square. Color is off white.
Condition is good with no holes or tears that I found. Have not been laundered so you will find some oxidation from storage.
