Oh, the starch! This hand embroidered table runner / dresser topper was decorated with love and well cared for as evidenced by the starch in the fabric. It measures 42 x 14.5 inches with the crocheted border being 1/2 inch deep. The fabric is a white linen. There are large pink blossoms, possibly peonies, amid sprays of pink asters. The stems and leaves are done in a light green; keeping the delicate feel of the piece. The lattice work and scrolls are in a variegated blue thread. This decoration is on either end. The middle is blank with the exception of a blue stitched line on either side. Overall, this work was well done; the stitches are tight and tidy. The only flaw is some discoloration of the crocheted edge. I could not bring myself to wash out the starch in an attempt to clean, so it is offered as found.
