Heirloom quality, this Antique Linen Tablecloth has outstanding hand embroidery work, cut work, needle work embroidery and filet inserts and lace. Beautifully adorned with embroidered open roses, repeating medallions and urns of flowers, garlands, and finished with filet lace all around, divine! Point de Venise lace, satin padded stitching, cutwork, corner inserts, this decorative heirloom cloth has it all. The work is amazing, a masterpiece for your collection and table. Stunning and exceptional, this tablecloth was very expensive to purchase when it was made, it has been cared for through the decades.
A luxury cloth like this would take an expert needlewoman many, many months to make, at times these were ordered for nobility or high society hostesses, and it could take almost a year to make just one, getting every stitch just right. A true luxury for your table, there is very little damage, I have shown where the filet has come loose a little, and two minor spots which should soak out, a few tiny brides are broken, nothing major. Set your most exquisite table for the beautiful events in your life with this cloth, these are so rare to find in this condition. Includes twelve napkins, two of which have spots which may soak out.
