Stunning Vintage Antique Hand Knit Cotton Lap Throw, Shawl, Runner -cotton-fine :
I purchased this item over 30 years ago in a little antique store just outside of Hollywood--its just beautiful! Hand knit in a very intricate pattern--you can see the excellent quality from the pictures--the pattern and stitching are very intricate and very well done. This is a very versatile piece--it can be used as a lap throw, a shawl, thrown over the end of your bed or even a table runner for an elegant Victorian or even a cottage type table setting. This is all fine cotton thread as you can see from the delicate stitching. The condition is very good--you can see in the pics where it looks as though two stitches were dropped and the one corner was not completely rounded when finishing. I have enjoyed this for years but as my downsizing continues many items have to move on to new homes where they will continue to be loved & cherished. This measures approx 29" in width at the widest point of the edging scallop and 88" in length-- I say approximate as I tried very hard not to stretch it as I measured it. I'm sure that you will treasure this as much as I have--it really is unusual & a treasure--I don't know who spent all those hours creating this, but they were a true needle artist. No international shipping. No returns. If you have any questions, please ask.
