This tablemat is made of fine white linen and whitework embroidered at each end with 2 butterflies framing a stylized flower. The edge is large scallops finished in satin stitch embroidery. The center is plain making it ideal as a base for something spectacular. It is 16 x 24 inches. It is immaculate.
If you love butterflies or are shopping for someone who does, this Victorian table or dresser mat is a wonderful addition to the antique linen collection. It is very adaptable; use it on the dining table under your centerpiece, on an end table, or on a dresser. It would be ideal on an old wash stand with a bowl and pitcher on top.
Condition is great for 100+ year fine old used linens.
