Regular readers of my blog will know that my 82 year old mother enjoys being a 'runner' for my website! She attends lots of sales and car boots looking for things for me to sell and I often pop down to Cornwall to collect more stock. Sometimes she posts them, particularly linens and this morning I received a package of the most beautiful things.
This Irish lawn single bedspread is exquisite and I think it would look lovely as a curtain which I've quickly tried to photograph. Does anyone know what this type of 'embroidery' is please?
There is also a large case measuring about 4 ft by 3 ft so too large for a continental pillowcase, I wonder if it was intended to be used on a child's bed as it is embroidered with the name 'Margit'. It also has the most intricately sewn handmade buttons along the bottom edge and pretty lace edging.
Apparently all this large tablecloth was embroidered by a man (the seller's grandfather).
There was even more but I won't photograph all of it.
