Rectangular hand-embroidered tablecloth from 1950, weaving made of 100% extrafine linen.
This stunning tablecloth was exceptionally made with multiple embroideries, it has never been used in order to preserve it in every way.
The tablecloth was exhibited in numerous exhibitions of lace and embroideries.
The best linen of the time was used to make this precious tablecloth. In fact, besides the quality of the embroidery, this tablecloth is particularly precious because the linen itself is very valuable, it has a very fine weave and a particular lightness that make it very soft. As a result, the whole tablecloth, including its napkins, is very light.
Given the rarity of the craftsmanship, the work, the design and the time required for its production, being in possession of such embroidery is to be considered a real investment that can be revalued over the years for the rarity and value of the work.
Description: The tablecloth comes with dining napkins, also embroidered.
Tablecloth measurements are: length 270 x width 170, with 12 napkins.
The tablecloth may present light signs of yellowing that are entirely natural.
Linen is the oldest and most fascinating fibre, it was widely grown by Egyptians, Babylonians, Phoenicians and other peoples of the Middle East. The production, processing and use of linen are widely documented in tombs, pyramids, and other Egyptian monuments. White linen was a symbol of divine purity. To this day, the techniques of growing, harvesting and processing are still the subject of a continuous evolution that makes linen a modern and unique fabric.
Linen is grown both to harvest seeds and to produce a very precious, soft, flexible and strong fibre. Since it is a natural fibre, it has hypoallergenic characteristics and promotes the well-being of the body. Its main features are its softness, the immediate absorption and evaporation of liquids, as well as the fast elimination of heat and moisture.
