A pair of whitework cutwork embroidered doilies from the 1920's. With the discovery of King Tutankaman's tomb, the Egyptian revival period influenced fashion and home goods during this Art Deco time.
The edging border of the two doilies feature Sphinx and mythical animals with the center plain cloth. The cloth may be a linen or a fine cotton. More than likely machine made.
The border edging is 1-7/8" wide with the whole doily 9" in diameter.
Condition: A few of the connecting bridges, or brides are broken or frayed on both doilies. Clean and free of spots.
A mesmerizing pair of doilies, don't you think?
