Maria NiforosAntique Lace & Textiles. Superb Flemish lace tablecloth with masses of hand work. I noticed the Met has a fragment that seems similar in design & claim late 16THC. The accession number is 08.48.133B.
So not sure , was it copied later or is it a early cloth> Any ideas form lace specialists , let me know your thoughts. The bobbin lace central panel has undulating vines, poppies & leaves.
19 FT long & completely covered in handwork, apprx. Possibly quite a early cloth as opposed to later in time. There is a amazing amount of work, profuse in design.
The design is extremely unusual. Many of the laces we are listing came from a very old lace collection.Laces were stored away for well over 60 -80 years. All were eventually kept in acid free tissue & acid free boxes. All items we list need to be laundered. Please be aware that at times there may be delays due solely to the Post Office. _gsrx_vers_632 GS 6.9.8 (632).
