In 1886, Grover Cleveland, the 22nd President of the United States, was in office. R. L. Stevenson wrote “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated in New York Harbor on October 28th. John S. Pemberton first introduced Coca-Cola in Atlanta, Georgia. And this table cloth was made.
Aunt Nancy is my husband’s great, great aunt and this table cloth was discovered in her attic. His family knows I love and appreciate antiques, especially family pieces, so they gave it to me.
Can you imagine how long this lace work took to make? I’m impatient when I’m waiting for my pictures to load, so I can write a post. I would’ve had a tough time finishing a project like this.
“Things of quality have no fear of time”
This table cloth is evidence of that.
