Antique Linen and Lace Tablecloth

Monogrammed "BWH" with Hearts

Item Number T047410

I've shown this amazing antique linen tablecloth on my little English pub table, below, but in my mind's eye I see it on a grand round hall table...18 foot ceilings...marble floors...OH...can you see it too??! 

Ok. So here is the bad news:  this fabulously beautiful piece has several flaws of note, all photographed below.  Two larger holes (one is about 1/4" and the other is smaller), one on either side of one of the monograms.  Since there are two monograms, there is one side where these larger holes can not be seen.  In addition, there is a small area near the center of the cloth with numerous very small holes clustered together.  There are one or two very minor breaks in the lace which I forgot to photograph because I was aghast at the holes.  :-(  I've priced the piece for it's condition -- I am a perfectionist, I admit...

...but there is a lot of good news, too!! Creamy antique hand wet spun linen is trimmed and set with deep hand made linen bobbin lace and finished with French rembourré style embroidered heart-medallions.  A beautiful and large triple monogram is repeated on opposite sides of the piece, "BWH". Fabulous, freshly laundered and pressed, in good, useful condition.  c.1900 - 1930's.  84" round  Monogram 4.5" X 4"
