This round, vintage style, white with dusty rose trim, colored pineapple doily was created using Aunt Lydias #10 crochet thread. Made in the traditional pineapple design, this doily measures 21" around.
Doilies were a practical and fashionable accent in Victorian homes. They were named after a famous French draper, Mr.D'Oyley, who encouraged their use to protect fine upholstery from the greasy hair oil sported by Victorian dandies. The legacy of lovely, lace-like creations is as warm and welcoming in the modern home as they were over a hundred years ago.
