Offering this Antique and Amazing thick heavyweight picnic cloth (39″ x 74″) sturdy Flax Linen Tablecloth. This beautiful cloth was purchased from a French dealer at one of the London Antique Markets that I visited this past fall. She said this cloth would have been used in the vineyards by the workers to spread and have their lunch. Note the Triple seam details and J.C. embroidered initials, adding to the charm. Makes me want to pack in my picnic basket for a spring picnic at the park!
There are several small rust stains which I have not tried to remove as all this adds to its country charm. The feel of these antique clothes are so special with their thick nubby creamy colored texture that just can’t be imitated.
If cared for, linen can last several hundred years. Linen is a naturally antibacterial fabric (so it never smells) made from flax, an ecologically sustainable crop.
