Extra long and extra gorgeous linen table runner, in superb Swiss Appenzell hand embroidery, circa 1920. Lovely ladies in period dress gather flowers like fruit from the tree, arms overflowing with blossoms, and aprons overloaded with bounty. A marvel of handwork, and absolutely beautiful.
There are three densely embroidered vignettes, one in the center and two larger ones on either side. At over 9 feet, the runner is too long for us to show it laid out in all its glory. We hope the photos are helpful.
Excellent condition, gently used. Hand laundered, bright and clean, just a few faint discolorations and smudges. Minor, this looks wonderful.
11.5 x 112 inches.
