Antique Society Silk Embroidered Tablecloth

with Cluny Lace -- "Violets"

Item Number T24206

Can you feel the breeze blowing? When I placed this amazing piece atop the wrought iron table a breeze blew and I thought I saw a petal flutter...

Richly shaded violets are perfectly embroidered in society silk style (cotton floss was used on this piece) on this Arts and Crafts era heavy natural linen tea cloth.  Finished with drippy hand made linen Cluny lace, the border is edged with colorful embroidered bands.   There are various minor age spots, shown below, and a fine small repair to a hole at the center of the piece...it takes little effort to overlook these "flaws"...a well placed vase covers a multitude of sins.... Grand shading here has achieved the realism that is a hallmark of the style.  Excellent to good condition as described and shown, freshly laundered and pressed.  c.1890's - 1920's.  36.5" X 39" including Cluny lace
