Vintage Linen Square Tablecloth, Queen Elizabeth II Coronation. Hand Embroidered Tablecloth With Red Roses, Thistles, Daffodils and Shamrock

Description ~

This square English white linen tablecloth is a stunningly beautiful and highly unusual example of an English tea party tablecloth with high quality hand embroidery. It was created to commemorate the 1953 coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. The national flowers of the countries that make up the United Kingdom make up the design: a red rose for England, a purple thistle for Scotland, a yellow daffodil for Wales and the green shamrock for Northern Ireland. The colour combination of red, purple, yellow and green is so bright and eye catching, and very uplifting. The clear central area would frame a celebration cake or flower arrangement beautifully. The flowers have been embroidered with the greatest skill. It is a very pretty and subtly patriotic tablecloth. Its certainly the right one for you, if you love tea parties and Great Britain!

The quality of the white linen fabric is very good. It has been hand embroidered with exceptional care and love over many hours. The back of the embroidery is particularly neat and tidy, which is always a sign of skilled needlework - see photo 9. Perfect for a vintage tea party or a special occasion for a loved one, such as a vintage styled wedding, British themed tea time or summer garden party. This tablecloth would work wonderfully with any dainty china.

Please ensure you check the dimensions below before ordering.

Condition ~

In excellent vintage condition, the colours are as lovely and bright as the day it was embroidered. There are no areas of wear as far as I can see. There are no holes and the fabric is a good quality. There is just one tiny mark, as can be seen in photo 10, which is really very very minor and faint. It does spoil the tablecloth. I aim to list only the very best vintage tea time linens on my shop, and this example fits with wonderfully with this aim. Any further wear or minor blemishes there may be are commensurate with age, use and the hand made nature of this linen.

Dimensions ~

44 1/8 x 40 1/8 inches approx. (112 x 103cm approx) All measurements approximate.

Packaging and Shipping ~

Your cloth will be careful and beautifully wrapped in vintage style gift wrapping, with vintage style brown paper and ribbon.

**Due to value, it will only be posted 1st class 'signed for' to UK addresses, or tracked and/or 'signed for' (depending on availability at the final destination) to international addresses outside of the UK.**

I have several other vintage tea party linens listed in my shop, so please take a look through the 'vintage linens' section in my shop.

PLEASE READ MY SHIPPING POLICIES BEFORE ORDERING.
