Each of the embroidered ribboned wreaths is varied in the colors she used. When opened up, each case has attached flannelette stitched to make 12 slots for knives, forks, and spoons, and a flap to secure them.. It seems to be of a linen/cotton blend with pale pink buttonhole hand stitching around all 4 sides...

This wonderful size to add to your collection , especially during the holidays. The pattern Bristol by Crown Ducal and color is highly collectible year round, but is especially enjoyed during the Christmas holidays! . The charming toile pattern of birds and florals is indicative of the chinoiserie design which the British became enamored with during the 1800's. I believe the pattern dates back to the late 1800's and was discontinued in 1931...

This vintage intricately hand monogrammed towel has so many swirls and curls embroidered throughout the letters, It's really hard to tell...perhaps VOC or LOC? Wow, it could be almost anyway you choose to see it. The 2" rose damask border is on all 4 sides, turning each corner. There is hand drawn hemstitching, on each end. The embroidery is not professional, but certainly by a very practiced embroideress, perhaps for her trousseau...

SOLD, thank you!
This precious clock has such intricate detail in the work. You can see the feathers on the lovebirds, cherub facial features and even more. I just love the figures of the cherubs, the smallest has hands clasped behind...maybe waiting for me to turn off the alarm.! Well I have gotten rather attached as I have used it nightly to make sure it works well, and it does! Just be sure not to over wind it!A true delight to see first thing in the morning...

I recently found this amazing hanky in Paris and could hardly believe the intricate hand work! The bouquet of roses, daisies, lily of the valley and more have such detail. The colors are so bright and vivid. The bouquet is surrounded by swirling car-touche woven into the sheer linen. It's hard to believe, but that even seems to be hand stitched, as there are no 2 exactly alike. I've spent much time examining even with a jewelers loupe. I might be wrong, but I've never seen anything I can compare...
