Czech Moravian Hand Embroidered Crocheted Folk Costume Apron Black with Flowers, Fruit 1930's

Amazing handwork on this folk costume piece from Moravia! Flowers and grapes signify one of the enduring festivals of that region celebrating the wine harvest.

The body of the apron is a polished cotton, black with a single horizontal pleat. The waist band is blue cotton and the sides have long ribbons also embroidered which is an early machine embroidery. The embroidery on the body is all hand work as is the sewing, it is reinforced on the back with the same blue fabric as the waistband(see last photo of back of garment). The hem is an interesting crocheted lace, cotton, which may also be early machine fabricated.

This lovely piece dates approximately to the 1930's.

waist band-12 inches across
hem: 24 inches across
lace: 4 inches wide
