Exceptional antique Cantu bobbin lace tablecloth with a wonderful variety of figural bobbin lace elements including pairs of swans, winged putti, peacocks and dancing women, a total of 42 individual figures. There is a central oval with mirror-image urns of flowers, each urn flanked by a pair of peacocks, and a pair of women at each end that seem to be creating or arranging the graceful tendril-ribbons and flowers. Alternating cartouches of putti and swans frame the central oval and the field is an intricate and elegant display of serpentine bands forming a striking diversity of floral-and-foliate elements and scroll-work. Many of the figural elements are layered and this exemplary tablecloth is in excellent uncleaned antique condition, very crisp and strong with a few small age spots, measures approximately 60 x 90-inches.
