Vintage Table Runner woven from beautiful sturdy unbleached linen. Possibly getting on for 100 years old, these cloths were manufactured as everyday domestic utility items and expected to last!
Measuring a generous 3 metres long it is woven at just over 80cms wide with a double woven stripe of orange running the length of each selvedge.
The cloth is in excellent vintage condition and the linen is still crisp with a slight sheen and doesn't appear to have been used or washed. The close detail photographs show how a variety of the natural linen thread has woven as a faint striped effect in some areas. I don't believe that fabric of this quality can be found these days for much less than £30 or £40 per metre so this 3 metre length represent excellent value.
