An equisitive white linen and darn net lace tablecloth from the Edwardian era. The hand made cloth, is rather extraordinary, as it features 13 hand embroidery on linen blocks and 12 darn net lace blocks. Each alternating throughout the 54" square table covering.
The linen squares are embellished with pull thread drawn work to form a large flower. Embroidered on the linen flower area, are clusters of small flora. The darn net (needlelace) is a stylized flora set in a diamond shape grid.
The size of each, and all of blocks, are 9-1/2" square. The tablecloth is edged with 2-1/2" darn net lace, in yet another design.
The cloth has been freshly laundered and expertly pressed. The look is amazingly beautiful.
Condition of the cloth is very nice, although being vintage with some usage, I noticed a few broken thread here and there. I have shown a couple of photos relating to this. None of the flaws are significant. Very minor, in my opinion, which does not take away from the beauty of this treasure.
