Antique Silk Embroidered

Lace Bible Cover

Item Number C37110

Early Victorian antique silk embroidered Bible cover doily is in near perfect condition with the exception of a tiny bit of wear on the back side, shown below.  It was used to cover the family Bible as it lay upon a table in a public room of the house.  The lace was hand made and rather naive, but so charming for that very reason.  This piece would be a grand candidate for framing or to be used as a pillowtop.  The embroidery is pre- society silk but shows skill in design and execution.  Gold metallic chenille embroidered border is rare and exceptionally executed.  Excellent condition, offered as found.  c.1880's 17" X 18" including lace
