UF44 Herringbone Gold Metallic Hand Embellished Table Runner
14 x 54+ inches
I can not imagine the hours of work that went in to creating this
magnificent table runner. When one looks closely one can see that the
base pattern used to create this masterpiece was actually pillow ticking
fabric. In previous eras women created their pillows using this fabric.
As it is very substancial and has straight lines, it is a perfect
fabric to embellish. Each 1/4" row is embellished with one of
approximately a dozen different colored embroidery threads.,. Some of
these are actually gold metallic thread. Along each row a strip of
either gold, silver or bronze metallic thread was carefully stitched in
a cross stitch pattern. On each end there was added 7-1/2" of gorgeous
teal in a silk velvet. Finishing off each end are a half dozen silk tassels.
I never cease to be amazed at the creativity of so many women to embellish their homes with exquisite handmade textiles. What a perfect basis for a centerpiece on your table throughout the year.
