Vintage Square Tablecloth With Bright Flowers And Leaves. Hand Embroidered Large White Linen Tablecloth. Perfect For An Afternoon Tea Party

Description ~

This large square English white tablecloth is a superb example of an English tea party linen tablecloth with skilled hand embroidery. A very unusual and exceptionally beautiful design is formed by trailing ivy-like foliage forming a circular pattern and off shoots coming out all way around. The foliage is dotted all the way along with cluster of stunning striped flowers in shades of pinks, yellows, purples and oranges. These flowers do seem to resemble stylised passion flowers.

This beautiful design has been hand stitched by someone with an extremely high standard of embroidery and needlework skills, the back is so neat, as shown in photo 8. 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, bright white linen. It also has a lovely hand crocheted wide edging, which is stitched to the hem of the tablecloth. There is no doubt, this is definitely one of the most beautiful large, hand embroidered, tablecloths I have found and certainly one of the most unusual and unique patterns.

Perfect for a vintage tea party, this tablecloth would work wonderfully with any dainty vintage china. It would be especially perfect for a vintage wedding or a birthday party. 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. It is getting harder and harder to find hand embroidered tea time linens of this quality and in such excellent condition, so I am really pleased with this find.

Please ensure you check the dimensions below before ordering.

Condition ~

In very good 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. There are a few very very pale marks, as photo 9 gives an example of, but these are so pale and minor, that they really do not spoil the overall appearance of this beautiful tablecloth. One is in the centre of the cloth and one is towards one corner. Both are very pale and hard to spot unless the tablecloth is studied very closely. I only list the best linens I can find on my shop. Please ask for further photos. Any further wear or marks are commensurate with age and use.


45 1/2 inches x 46 1/2 inches approx. (115.5 x 118cm approx).

So very nearly a perfect square.
