This lovely piece was kept by me as a treasure for 20 years after purchase with some antique linens, but have since adopted a country lifestyle so even if I were to finish it with a fabulous silk lining I'd never use such a fancy, dainty thing.
The crocheted mesh is in fine condition with no evident breaks or imperfections. I've left the only hint of the now non-existent lining: a fine black line of hand-stitching still apparent on the inside of the upper band and at the inner bottom---left so the new owner can place and secure a new lining as originally intended.
As you'll see from the photos, it's shaped like an oriole's nest (lovely bird!), --or like a tulip. It measures 8"/20.5 cm high and is 15"/38 cm. around the top band and the round flat part of the base is 2"/5 cm. in diameter. The braided tying cords with their knotted ends each extend 8.5"/22 cm. from the upper band.
