Reminiscent of the 19th century ball gowns seen swirling through Visconti's interpretation of "The Leopard", this tablecloth worked in blue and white cotton thread is a symphony of different stitches.
Unsung artists for hundreds of years, women have created needlework that is now ruined or lost. To find a piece like this, in perfect condition, is very difficult, to say the least. This is truly a dying craft and its high time that we venerate it. Forget dining on this, just draping it over a table and letting the sun shine on it is a transporting experience. Use it or decorate with it, this is a one-of-a-kind legacy piece and we won't be seeing another one again anytime soon.
