I'm not an expert in vintage linens, so I wasn't sure if the unusual shape of this pretty antique piece had a special meaning or purpose. Then I received a lovely note from Vintage Vagabond Too, explaining its origins:

"(This is) an elegant sandwich cover for tea time! You put the sandwiches on it, and fold the edges over diagonally and voila ~ the sandwiches stay fresh (sometimes water is even sprinkled onto the cloth if the weather is really dry). I know this because they still use them in India in the old British clubs."

Thank you, Vintage Vagabond!

Originally I had this piece listed as an antique table topper, doily, dresser or side table accent. It could still be used that way, if you simply enjoy antique linens :)

It measures just over 12-1/2 inches square. Three of the corners have the smaller flowers, and the one corner has the slightly larger flowers with the cutwork leaves.

The carpet is perfect! Using it for one of the centerpieces at my Disney themed wedding, at the Aladdin table. The package was delayed due to some snowstorms and the seller was great with communication and trying to help me find out where the package was. Luckily it still arrived with plenty of time for my wedding as well. 😊
