This is a wonderful vintage Battenburg Lace "work in progress." This unfinished tablecloth topper measures 25.5 inches by 27 inches. The pattern is printed on a pale pink linen/cotton material. Directions for the project are printed on the edges: "273. 27/27. 2.4 yards of braid. 72 rings." And " Use the real "Battenburg" thread for this project." This piece was evidently started, but never finished. It is a fine example of how Battenburg lace pieces were created as craft projects. Note: There are several age related holes in the center medallion of this piece.
