Is it a Doily?

Or is it something else?  The lace edging has too much of a frill to it so it won't lie flat.

It is lovely intricate work, but awkward.  It gets in the way a bit if you use it as a doily. Was the edging designed to have the extra weight so it would hang down?  Is it a cover for a cream jug, a beadless version?


  1. Perhaps if the edge were stretched out whilst being stiffly starched it may ripple like an Elizabethan Ruff. Just a thought.....

  2. I love it! perhaps it was made it for a container with a rounded shoulder wider than the rim so those tassles would hang perfectly
