On Sale - Antique Handmade Bobbin Lace Table Cloth Doily Embroidery Turkey Medallions Exquisite
Reduced from $245.00 to $145.00
An approximately 21"-22" diameter sheer lace table topper or doily for center piece or lamp.
The design consists of 16 Tom Turkey Medallions mounted with bobbin lace. Each of the turkey medallions appears to be hand embroidered onto sheer and very thin silk? fabric. When you turn it over you will see the threads being pulled from place to place like you do when you want to move to a different area to embroider another segment. Also, you will notice that the medallion is sewn onto the lace ribbon or vice versa, the fabric is folded over to the back with an ever so small seam allowance showing on the back. The last photo (#5) shows a close-up of the back.
The lace is yellowed from age and storage - I have not attempted to clean it. Has been stored in a box for the better part of a Century.
I am not a lace expert but this lace appears to have been handmade in an embroidery technique. The fabric is sheere and could be silk, I am not sure.
This table topper is a true stunner! I have never seen anything like it. It is very fine. I am so glad that it has been stored in a box and kept away from people most of the time. It is in excellent condition save for the yellowing and a couple of darker spots.
