Superb Four Crinoline Ladies Vintage Hand Embroidered Cottage Garden Flowers For Sale


theglebecountrystore store Four Beautiful Hand Embroidered Crinoline Ladies Vintage Linen Tablecloth


This is such a beautiful detailed example of hand embroidery from my collection of fine heirloom linens.

Over time I have had many crinoline lady pieces that I have made available for sale. I do so love these as each one is so different and very individual with their own personality. The detail is always worth examining as the more you look the more you see on pieces like these.

Quintessentially English they are symbolic of times gone by with ladies wearing fine gowns admiring the flowers in their country or cottage gardens and gathering bouquets of flowers.

It has been exquisitely embroidered with beautifully chosen very colourful embroidery silks and very detailed elaborate stitches. A beautiful, bright joyful tablecloth.

Perfect for a vintage afternoon tea party or to create a special focal point try layering it over a larger linen tablecloth for a tiered skirted effect.

This would also make a great vintage gift for someone special. I always pack very carefully with quality tissue paper and satin ribbons.


I have, as always, taken many images so that it is easier to appreciate and study the amazing needlework skills of those who created these heritage pieces from a bygone era. Please do so as they reflect the care, time & patience that has been spent on this beautiful work. I like to think the images speak for themselves.
However, I always aim to highlight all the relevant aspects in the detail below.

The Detail

  • At each corner there is a gorgeous expanse of embroidery in a stunning array of colours and measuring 13" x 11" (33cm x 28cm)
  • At each corner there is a lady picking flowers from her beautiful garden awash with summer flowers in full bloom.
  • Two of the ladies are wearing blue and yellow gowns with tiered over skirts and elaborate diamond patterned central panel in yellow and blue with accents of orange. This same orange is used to decorate the neckline of the bodice and the cuffs on the puff sleeves.
  • Their beautifully shaped bonnets match all the colours of their gowns and are decorated with tiny flowers and a long flowing ribbon and bow. They are carrying a large flower basket brimming with pink and red roses which they are picking from a near by rose bush.
  • The garden is full of cottage garden flowers. To the left there is a rose arch with pink roses and large bright pink daisies at its base. To the right there is a rose bush with red and pink roses, orange hollyhocks, pink and blue lupins, orange and red daisies and tiny tulip like flowers in purple, blue, turquoise, yellow and orange. The ladies are standing on a crazy paving path.
  • The other two ladies are wearing pink and pale green gowns. The front panels of their gowns are in the same diamond pattern as the other two ladies and have accents of rose red. This rose red is used to decorate the bodices and sleeves.
  • Their bonnets are decorated with tiny pink and red flowers and a long, flowing pink ribbon and bow. Their large flower baskets are full of red and orange roses which they are picking from the orange coloured rose bush at the right.
  • To their left the rose arch has deep red roses with golden yellow daisies and green foliage at its base. Here the garden is full of pink and white hollyhocks, lupins in shades of coral, orange and yellow and purple and mauve. The small daisies are in red, peacock blue and orange. The tiny tulip like flowers in pink, peacock blue, red, purple and orange.
  • The centre of the tablecloth is dominated with extensive decoration of more Cottage garden flowers forming a large circle measuring 20" (51cm)
  • Here the flowers are towering, tall hollyhocks in shades of orange, apricot and golden yellow their centres worked in brown. A border of smaller low growing flowers in purple, lavender, pinks and red completes the picture.
  • The material is fine ivory white linen with a traditional turned hem and drawn thread work 42" x

    Condition: Very good vintage. The linen is very fresh and clean and ready for use. The embroidery colours are vibrant and show very little sign of rubbing. There is one very small tiny weak spot in amongst the embroidery so not very obvious which looks like a weaving flaw. I do not think that this affects the appearance or value of this beautiful vintage tablecloth.
