This lovely handmade Italian Point Venice tablecloth is so beautiful that I wanted to share this lovely creation with you. Imagine the beauty of this cloth gracing a Victorian / Edwardian dining room table in the early 1900's. Ah yes, it had to be a true focal point as the quality of the piece speaks for itself. The cloth measures 72" x 104" and features angelic figures. Towards the center of the cloth there are eleven entwining circles with the outer ones of figures & inner of flora. Each of these circles measures 17" in diameter. There are 5 figures on the border of each of the long sides and 3 on the short sides. These figures are holding Grecian urns. Each of these figures measure 10-3/4". The entire tablecloth is very intricate & the work, I think, quite nice.

And yet another close-up photo.

Beautiful linens such as this tablecloth are lovely treasures from the past to appreciate today. If you are a collector a piece such as this would make a fine addition to a collection. Treasures from the past also make lovely gifts as many are unique and one of a kind. If you are looking for gift giving ideas please visit my Store .
