50% OFF - Colorful Tufted or Punched Tablecloth Needs TLC
Without question this table cloth dates to the 1940's. I can remember it from when I was 8 or 9 years old on our enclosed back porch table in the summers adorned with a ship's wheel lamp. I was always intrigued by the thick raised yarn flowers marching around the black embroidered border and have saved it for many years in the bottom of the cedar chest. I have determined now that the flowers are punched or tufted with a special needle which would explain the loosely woven fabric of the cloth.
Because of its age and the detailed handwork involved, I have diverted its path from the trash bin. The cloth is damaged with a large hole (see photo), but I am convinced a skilled seamstress could patch this and hopefully give it another few years as a sample of mid-century embroidery. Fringed edge is also embroidered with tiny black stitches to prevent fraying. Measures 39-inches wide and 58-inches long (not counting the fringe).
