A lovely off-white Ivory Original Cotton Filet Knotted Net Lace Tablecloth, Hand Made with the traditional Fisherman knots in each corner, not machine made, as in the Chinese copies.

Filet Lace Plain knotted netting was made with a small shuttle and gauge rod, then the net was stretched on a frame and patterns needle-woven into the net. Originally called "lacis," this was one of the oldest forms of lacemaking -- one used frequently in 16th and 17th century in Italy and Sardinia. (The origins commenced in the fishing ports) The technique was revived in the mid 19th century and adopted enthusiastically by Victorians. Like many other laces, the technique was widely copied by machine processes well into the 20th century, but handmade examples are easily identified. Original Handmade cloths are identified by small individual fishermen's knots which can be seen at each corner of the square-meshed netting. In the purest pieces, designs were produced solely in linen weave, while in others, longer darning stitches were used for contrast as with this table cloth.
