Vintage linen tea tray cloth with blue flowers. 1950s English blue and white linen tray cloth with hand embroidered flowers. For Tea Time

Description ~

This oblong white English tea tray cloth is an exceptional example of a beautifully handmade and lovely quality vintage tea party linen. Delicate flowers in various shades of blue are exquisitely embroidered by hand into the lovely fine linen. They are arranged the clin two corners of the cloth and would frame a little tea setting on a tea tray, cake or flower arrangement wonderfully. The design and colours are so very pretty and the stitches very tiny and neat, skilled and fine - photo 7 shows the reverse of the cloth and how neat these stitches are on the reverse, always the sign of skilled hand embroidery. The fabric is a good quality, this tray cloth just looks and feels a special vintage teatime linen, perfect for a special tea time for two or for display. Perfect for a little tea table setting, this cloth would also work wonderfully as a vintage home accent piece and would display beautifully on a side board or consort table. It could even be turned into the front of a very precisely and pretty handmade cushion. This cloth would also make a wonderful gift to a tea time fan or lover of vintage linens. Made in England from linen, it most likely dates from the early 1950s. If you love using blue and white tea time china, this would be the perfect linen for your tea table or tea tray!

Please note, it is not possible to reserve items for first time customers, I'm very sorry. I can only reserve an item for a repeat customer, for a strict 24 hour period only.
All orders are gift wrapped in vintage style brown paper and pretty ribbon as standard. There is no extra charge for this. Christmas gift wrapping can also be selected for an order at the checkout. I reuse packaging boxes and filling materials wherever possible, for environmental reasons and to keep costs down, but please rest assured that your order will still look smartly gift wrapped.
