Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

Antique Embroidered Society Silk Doily

Strawberries

Item Number D27106

My freezer is full....strawberry picking was grand this year with my daughter and her best friend Laurie....whose birthday we celebrated by picking berries and eating as many as we took home....happy birthday, Laurie!

Delightfully embroidered linen antique doily has dancing strawberries and luscious green leaves that grow up out of the earth shaded edge.  Despite a small hole at the very edge and another little pin prick, both shown below, this piece is extraordinary for it's whimsy and composition....right down to the brown earth-border...  The pattern repeats six times with minor variations to form a balanced "frame" for the inevitable summer bouquet that should sit atop this beautiful piece.   Fine work, lovely shading and padded embroidery...Good to excellent  condition as described, spotless and worthy of display, freshly laundered and pressed.  c.1900  15" round
