EXQUISITE BANQUET TABLECLOTH W/BRUSSELS DUCHESSE,POINT DE GAZE LACE




EXQUISITE BANQUET TABLECLOTH W/BRUSSELS DUCHESSE,POINT DE GAZE LACE. This wonderful banquet tablecloth measures apprx. almost 150 by 70 inches, 381 cm by 177.8cm.I have had only three of this type of tablecloths in all the years I have been selling. Obviously someone very wealthy commissioned this cloth and had put at it's center a beautiful Brussels lace shawl and then had raised whitework satin stitch embroidery worked around the design.The lace was backed with net as it was very rare to use such good lace on a tablecloth.The last two I had, had large crowns and came from a estate that belonged to a royal family.Everything about this cloth is superb, the Brussels lace is ornate with lovely large florals, meandering scrollwork, tiny needlelace designs and large ovals containing Point De Gaze floral bouquets. The lace part extended down the center so guests would have had their plates on the linen part.A stunning cloth in every respect. In very good strong condition, this cloth almost seems unused and came from a estate deaccession in England. (Item #)

A wonderful early christening ensemble consisting of a infants robe , cover and sleeves.The cream silk of course is  absolutely luminous and the design has wonderful meandering vines,leaves and large blossoms with a deep border on the front and back and and again a wide border all the way up the shirt with silk ribbons attached at the center. There is a matching large silk measuring apprx. 42" by 33".This piece has a wide border of the florals on three sides, the top part is plain and so it is possible this was used as a cover for the infant.There are also a matching pair of sleeves .The ensemble is in amazing condition, it has one small wear area at top of bodice near seam and a few light storage stains, minor. The set came from England and although I am not sure of provenance, I was told it belonged to a very aristocratic family.This of course makes sense because the quality of the silk and the superb embroidery was exceptional.A beautiful set for Museum or  collector.
