Society Silk Linen & Finest Thread Battenburg Lace Tea Cloth or Large 36 inch Centerpiece Chrysanthemums

Material:  Linen, Silk Floss & Hand Made Battenburg Tape Lace

Size:  Overall ~ 36 inches,  Linen center ~ 13 inches
Quantity:  1

The 11 & 1/2 deep hand made Battenburg lace on this antique c. 1880 - 1910 society silk tea cloth was made of very thin, fine thread and then hand stitched to the linen.

Various shades of high quality silk embroidery floss was expertly used to decorate the hand hemmed, very fine cream linen in an aesthetic Art Nouveau floral chrysanthemum and foliage motif.

This tea cloth is not only a very fine example of early Society silk work, but also that of a very talented and skilled lace maker.

It is freshly laundered and in very nice condition, but it is not absolutely perfect.  There are several small light specks and marks remaining to the linen, but they are subtle and fairly light.  Quite inconsequential in our opinion, with no large noticeable stains, etc.  The lace is in exceptionally nice condition, almost perfect, with just a few hard to find missing/loose brides.  Even though this is very fine lace it feels strong, as does the linen.

If you are a lace or Society work collector you should enjoy this wonderful antique cloth.
