This is a very charming and unusual buffet or server linen. The subject is little boys preparing tea with some very large-sized items. It is German and dates from about 1890. It is all hand embroidered in shades of golden yellow. It measures 16" by 60" and is in pristine condition. The fabric is white with no stains, damage or repairs. All the stitching is intact and perfect. Take a close look at the wonderfully playful scenes of the children working very hard to serve a perfect cup of tea with cakes. This is one of the most original pieces of needle art I have ever seen. It would be lovely to display across a buffet, server or down the center of a table. Would also make a lovely wall hanging.
