Antique Society Silk Embroidered Doily Keeper


Item Number D31808

 Sweetly embroidered antique linen "Doylies" keeper is executed in the society silk style with wild pink roses and buds with shimmery golden leaves and stems.   A little book was made, perhaps from a kit or instructions from a magazine, of heavy paper, cardboard, and beautifully hand embroidered fine gray linen.  Smudges on the outside of the piece are evident in the photos.  Other flaws are noted, below, in the photos.  This is a charming Victorian piece for your society silk embroidery collection.  Embroidery is in excellent condition...other flaws are noted, but perfect for display!  c.1890 - 1910  8.75" square (closed)
