This late Victorian Edwardian 20 inch centerpiece doily is truly a work of needle art. Worked on a pulled thread base, large acanthus leaves, are appliqued with padded embroidery stitches. Each of the leaves forms the shape of the scallop at the edge of the doily.
Groupings of small floral further accents this magnificent doily. The 6 inch wide border is then stitched to the linen center. Some of the smaller flowers spill over the edge of the linen center.
Doily has been laundered and pressed. Very nice ready to use or suitable for gift giving.
