A lovely hand English Branscombe needlelace tablecloth from the early part of the 1900's or possibly late Victorian. All things about this lovely cloth suggest Battenburg except for the nubby edge which is a trademark for English Branscombe. An elaborate fine needle work pattern covers most of the linen cloth with the cloth measuring 37" x 38". Center area measures 17" square with the outer border measuring 7 to 12" in width.
