The art of fine table linens were discerningly made and lovingly coveted by the Victorian homemaker. Beautiful sets of doilies were made for such purpose of setting a lovely table from the Victorian era into the early 20th century.
The Gatherings is offering just such a set in an intricate linen drawn pulled thread motif. The set consist of eight large doily mats, possibly used under the dinner plate and 12 smaller doilies to serve with smaller plates.
A lovely pattern featuring several hand drawn patterns, both on the outside pointed border as well as the inner portions of the doily. Oh my, think of the time it took to make this stunning set ~ not just one doily but 20.
