ORNATE 208-210" BURANO LACE BANQUET TABLECLOTH WITH OVAL VIGNETTES,FRUITS,FLOWERS,SCROLLWORK


ORNATE 208-210" BURANO LACE BANQUET TABLECLOTH WITH OVAL VIGNETTES,FRUITS,FLOWERS,SCROLLWORK. A superb tablecloth from Venice that seems as if it was never used.This came from a collection in Sutton Place. The original owner during the early 1900's travelled extensively throughout Europe . Ornate and with excellent workmanship, the cloth measures apprx. 210" by 75" wide.. apprx. 533.4cm by 190.5cm. There are large superb oval vignettes filled with Burano lace fruit and florals and the cloth is adorned with elaborate flower swags and scrollwork. This cloth is in very good condition, unused and had been rolled up for many years and kept in a linen covering for many years, so it has been well reserved and cared for. (Item #)

EXQUISITE,RARE 216" TABLECLOTH WITH 18THC.POINT DE FRANCE LACE,ROYAL MONOGRAM


EXQUISITE,RARE 216"TABLECLOTH WITH 18THC.POINT DE FRANCE LACE,ROYAL MONOGRAM. One of the most beautiful and rare tablecloths! This tablecloth was made for a member of a Royal household as all her items ,whether linens or purses had the Royal crown embellishment.The Point de France  lace dates from the 1700's. The designs are wonderful, with ornate urns overflowing with florals, elaborate swirling scrollwork , undulating florals and vines. This very rare museum quality lace was reinforced at the back with a fine net. There are two long Point De France panels measuring apprx. 60" by 22-23" wide for each one. There is also Point De France lace connecting the panels. with a large crown and opulent shaped monogram. The area where the crown and monogram are measures apprx. 8" on each end of the Tablecloth. There is elegant appliqué florals, meandering vines all around the outside of the designs and all around the area where the monogram and crowns are. This superb cloth is made of the finest linen and has it's original cream patina.I personally have never seen another cloth like this . It is absolutely museum quality or for the collector of very fine  and rare linens.The lace itself is a absolute work of art and my thoughts are that this might have been lace that was inherited through the family or I have seen many times how Royals were presented with exceptional  lace and linens as gifts.I do not believe the cloth was ever used and I must admit , I am not surprised!There is a light minor stain and some scattered small openings in the lace but overall I consider in quite amazing condition.In forty years, I have never seen a cloth with lace so magnificent. I always find that photos do not do justice to lace as fine as this, so cloth in my opinion is even more beautiful than pictures show.This of course could grace a special banquet table but my thoughts, best for museum or serious collector.(Item #)
