Vintage Square Tablecloth. Hand Embroidered White Linen Large Tablecloth With Brightly Coloured Flowers. Perfect for an afternoon tea party!

Description ~

This large square English white tablecloth is an exceptional example of an English tea party linen tablecloth with skilled hand embroidery. A dainty and pretty design of brightly coloured flowers form a motif in each corner, with a square of them in the central area. These have been hand stitched by someone with a high standard of embroidery and needlework skills, the back is so neat - see photo 8, where the front and reverse are shown against one another. A pretty cake stand of dainty afternoon tea party cakes, or a celebration cake, could be placed and framed wonderfully in the centre of this cloth. The fabric is a very good quality white linen of a good weight. Perfect for a vintage tea party, this tablecloth would work wonderfully with any dainty vintage china. It would be especially perfect for a summer garden party, vintage wedding or even a baby shower. It would also make a wonderful gift for someone who loves vintage linens or who is looking to add a touch of vintage style to their home. This cloth probably dates to around 1950s and is a beautiful example of an English needlework tea table linen.

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 stitched. There are no holes or areas of thinning or wear as far as I can see. Any wear or marks there may be are commensurate with age. Please ask for further photos.

Dimensions ~

52 1/4 inches x 48 1/2 inches approx. (132 x 123cm approx).

So very nearly, but not quite, a perfect square.
