"Antique hand made Tenerife bobbin lace tablecloth in a rich cream... With options being limited only by one's imagination, this airy panel fashioned of linen or metis, is displayed as a possible small collar cape or scarf, and features an open floral geometric motif with radiating starbursts... Circular-shape, measures ~38in across, and finished off with a deeply scalloped edge all around. Unlaundered, and in overall very good condition, with age discoloration, few spots, and a rare broken bride. Otherwise, no other issues noted.
