Antique Table covering is beautifully embroidered with SILK threads in TINY stitches that include: chain, padded satin stitch, buttonhole, French Knots with cut work and needle lace fillings. The French knots are the size of a pin head to give you an idea of the remarkably tiny scale of this embroidery. The motifs of flowers, ferns and foliage give this textile a Victorian ambiance and may be from this era.
This textile looks to have never been used and has been stored away as the treasure it is. I believe the white cloth ground is fine linen. Pristine condition with a few very faint storage marks. Tablecovering measures 29 inches square.
