Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

           Royal Monogram "G" with Coronet

Antique Linen and Cluny Lace Tablecloth

            Item Number T24606

Splendidly large antique linen tablecloth is trimmed with Cluny lace insertions and a deep 13.5" flounce.  A gloriously embroidered royal monogram, "G" is topped with a coronet, the universal embroidery symbol of royalty.  I have no provenance...only the assurance from antiquity that the coronet was never embroidered on a piece that was not commissioned by royalty.   The surrounding materials -- finest wet and hand spun linen and linen Cluny lace would also indicate the piece hales from a royal address.

The monogram is perfectly hand embroidered with a technique called "couching" -- the systematic layering of underlying stitches to raise and shape the finished satin stitched embroidery....in this case, it is three dimensional and professionally executed.  The lace is drapey and soft...this piece would be fabulous draped over a central hall table at the entrance to your royal chateau.  Freshly laundered and pressed, in excellent condition. c.1900  72" round, including lace
