Six Vintage Irish Crochet Lace Doilies (5 1/2 inches)
A matching set of six vintage handmade Irish crochet white lace doilies or cocktail/table mats. They are from the 1950s, 5 1/2 inches in diameter, hand crocheted in a traditional Irish wheel motif and finished to the edge with fine picot detailing.
They are in excellent condition and freshly laundered for your immediate use.
I like to use little doilies like these on my dressing table. I have shown some in photos with a perfume bottle, trinket dish and one covering a jug, to give you an idea of what they may look like in use. The accessories I've used don't come with the sale of doilies.
I have two sets of six available.
Size: approx. 5 1/2 inches diameter.
Price: 15 euro
Vintage Whitework Embroidery Linen Handkerchief Case
A beautiful vintage linen handkerchief case with hand embroidered whitework. Made in the 1950s this pure white, crisp, strong linen case, has a pretty front flap that covers the complete width of the case. It has a scalloped and embroidered edge, with embroidered clovers displayed along the edges. There are three letters initialled in one corner.
It was probably made for use to keep hankies in, but could equally be used for as storage for gloves, lace or any other delicate items.
There is a small stain above the initials, and a small rust mark on the inside of the front flap, which I have shown in the photos, but it is otherwise in superb, freshly laundered condition and measures approx. 13” x 8 1/2”
Size: approx. 14 1/2 inches x 6 inches.
