Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

Antique Society Silk Bible Cover

Item Number D19905

Dated 1887 on a hand written note that I have not been able to locate, this antique silk embroidered Bible cover doily is definitely showing it's age.  It was used to cover the family Bible as it lay upon a table in a public room of the house.  The lace was probably once an ecru color and is now, well, we don't like to use the "b" word when discussing the color of lace...  It is structurally sound, not dry rotted at all and thus would be a grand candidate for framing.  The embroidery is pre- society silk but shows skill in design and execution.  The red silk is intact and is backed with very fine net.  Good but aged condition, offered as found.  c.1887
