This is a very elegant and romantic doily with lovely roses. Wonderful hand embroidery (see last picture of the back) This is made by a very skilled needle crafter. Most parts of the flowers and leaves are done in shadow technique in very fine stitches on transparent fine cotton batist. The scalopped edges are done in buttonhole stitches.

I have bought it in Switzerland more then 30 years ago. Because it is part of my needlecraft collection it was used only a few times for display behind glass, so it is in excellent condition and in fact not used as table linen.

It measures 14,5 cm or 5.7 inches across. I have washed and pressed it very carefully before listing using no starch.

What a wonderful gift for somebody dear to you who likes traditional needlecraft. What a great way to spoil yourself a little. I have 2 of these wonderful doilies available.

I have more classic embroidered pieces listed in my shop. You can find them here:
