Another lovely piece of Victorian society silk embroidery. This table doily features the Christmas season of embroidered holly berry and leaves. Along with other winter foliage, in a beautiful shade of cream thread, the 21" diameter doily sets the stage for decorating a table merry. Embroidered on white linen, the doily edge features deep scallops outlined in button hole stitch.
It is a beautiful doily even though it has some minor flaws. Two small holes in one area and two pin dot holes in another.
