Antique Italian Figural Filet Needlelace
and Embroidered Linen Runner
"Stag Hunt on Horseback"
Item Number R10107
Ever-so white linen and lace antique runner tells the story of a hunt for wild game. Hunters on horseback track a stag through the woods from one end to the other, triumphing at last on the opposite side. The frenzied, barking dog perfectly completes the scene. A myriad of animals from rabbits to squirrels are depicted on each of the large panels and around the entire edge.
Crisp, richly padded embroidery on fine white linen, is Italianesque in form and professionally hand executed. Linen panels are attached to the lace with hand buttonhole stitching. A few separations at the edge of the lace and two ancient repairs, shown below, are flaws of note but do not detract at all, as you can see. Elegantly masculine and rich with detail. Freshly laundered and pressed, in good to excellent condition, as described and shown. c.1900 22.5" X 66"
