Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

Antique Society Silk Embroidered Centerpiece

"Carnations and Lace"

Item Number T32908

Embroidered silk Carnations and leaves surround the border of this beautiful antique linen tea cloth or centerpiece.  Fine work and careful detail leave no doubt as to the style of work or, for that matter, the genus of species.  Cream linen is medium weight...the edge is finished with earth brown scallops and a deep hand made Cluny lace flounce. 

Green floss colors vary as if the sun were reflecting on one and not the others...but truthfully, the needle worker likely ran out of one shade and finished with another!...charming, don't you think?!  Breaks in the lace and a rough area are minor but should be noted, below.  Freshly laundered and pressed, in otherwise excellent condition.  c.1890 - 1910  25" including 2" lace
