Beautiful antique tambour lace runner, measuring a massive 42" long by 12" wide, with intricate floral bouquets and paisley type swirls and a curled serpentine border. The tambour embroidery is beautifully and densely worked across much of the mesh ground, giving a rich and lovely look. Considering the age and delicacy the runner is in very good order, there are some very small areas of separation to the mesh, a couple of very tiny repairs, and some minor unraveling to the edges (see photos), but overall the runner displays wonderfully. This is lovely item for the advanced textile collector to enjoy, place it across a dresser, buffet or along a table, it will look rare, exquisite, antique and beautiful. I have priced to ship boxed as I am not happy to envelope pack this type of fragile old lace, due to the risk of damage.
