Blue Flower Vintage Society Silk Embroidery & Battenberg Lace Centerpiece
This is a lovely vintage society silk embroidered Doily, or small centerpiece. c 1900. It features a blue flower, and its foliage, on linen. The linen is undulating octagon shape. The flower reminds me of Clematis, but I do not think that is what it is. A bit of a mystery with its Bluebell bud.
I particularly love the delicate hand done Battenberg lace that surrounds it.
CONDITION: Excellent gently used condition. It is clean and ready to enjoy. The linen is not pure white, but has some very subtle age variation in the surface. We never push cleaning society silk as the floss is easy to compromise.
SIZE: approx 16" square
