ANTIQUE UNUSED LACE TABLECLOTH BANQUET SIZE BELGIUM ZELE NEEDLELACE ECRU 124" x 70". This skillfully made light ECRU colored not white Zele needlelace tablecloth is a cherished piece and a wonderful example of Victorian needlework. I believe this cloth dates from the mid nineteenth century.
This tablecloth was de-accessioned from the Rochester Strong Museum and still retains it identification catalog numbered museum tag. I had a hard time getting the true color of this cloth in photos, he cloth is a light tan ecru color. These opulent tablecloths are reminiscent of a very grand and regal period in linens. The condition is excellent with no broken brides, that I could find, but for its age there probably are a few, one very small stain and no weakness or repairs anywhere. I have not laundered this cloth.This cloth was made in BELGIUM. This tablecloth consists of lovely motifs of grapes, leaves and flowers. This table linen measures 124'' x 70. This grand tablecloth will enhance any holiday table setting.
