Circa late 1800's, a beautiful Italian Bobbin lace banquet tablecloth. The design is quite extravagant with swirling and undulating vines and flowers surrounding the central vignette. Two eagles with crowns are then surrounded by birds in flight, rabbit or hares, peacocks, and dogs. There are appr. over sixty animals worked into this cloth. A stunning tablecloth with a wonderful design!
