We're based in our own Scottish Home: a beautiful 200 year old cottage in lowland Scotland, from which we have been dealing in antiques and collectables with a Scottish flavour for more than ten years. The business places a special emphasis on the textiles that have always been my personal passion, although I'm also fond of Scottish art, treen and domestic collectables. I'm a well published writer of novels - many of them historical - as well as non fiction. My antiques often find their way into my fiction.

Description

This is incredibly delicate and beautiful: a white tea tablecloth in the finest Tenerife style lace, with lots of drawn work and wonderful, typical, cobwebby lace inserts. The modern Tenerife work is lovely, but nothing like this. The whole thing is done on a very soft linen, I think. although there is more lace than linen about it, making it very soft under the hand. It is just off square at 45 by 43 inches - a good size for a decorative tea tablecloth. Can be laundered with care. Please see condition report for a few small faults.

Declaration

The Scottish Home has clarified that the Delicate Tenerife Lace & Drawn Work On White Linen Tea Tablecloth (TSH/11 / LA95311) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being c.1930.

Condition

There is one little hole on the border, and a few places where there are loose stitches in the lace, but for something so delicate and intricate, this is in good condition. It is clean and fresh, but rather soft. A little mild starch might help it.
