Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

Huge Antique French Linen

Tablecloth with Deep Ruffles

Item Number S15806

Gi-normous (thank you, Claire for this wonderful new word!) antique French linen tablecloth is trimmed all around with 6" deeply gathered still my heart.  Please don't ask about the conversation I had with my husband about knocking down a wall in the dining room so we could buy a larger table so I could keep this beautiful piece....No.  I'm not crazy.  And, Yes.  It's that amazing.

Antique French linen tablecloth (perhaps this was an altar cloth?) is heavy but finely woven and finished with hand drawn hems, a row of hand made Dutch lace and ruffles.  Every stitch was made by hand and represents a labor of love as this would have sent the modern seamstress through several eyeglass prescriptions and numerous therapy appointments at just the thought (we are so spoiled, aren't we?).  The rich, creamy white linen is quite substantial and when ironed will absolutely stop your guests in their tracks.

Imagine with me for a moment that you, like me, don't have a 12 foot dining table...hmmm....could this be a swag for a clerestory window?....or split in two (GASP) for drapes??...or split in two (Gasp again!) for matching twin bed spreads or dust ruffles???  Fabulous designer piece for your most froo froo imagination.
