We are pleased to offer this wonderful and rare table linen. It is a carving or carver's cloth. This piece was to be used on the table, on top of the tablecloth, placed underneath the roast, ham, turkey, etc. The cloth would protect the tablecloth from any drips or spatters while the roast was being carved for serving!
This unusual piece features the heavily embroidered design of two carving sets, a knife and fork. There are also embroidered poppy flowers around the rectangle. There is also wonderful drawn-work and a border of fine crochet work.
This fine linen is all hand worked and in very good condition. It has not been starched or ironed but received a fresh soak in Biz and a gentle wash to remove any storage soil.
A great heirloom piece for your dining room table! Get ready for the holidays.
