Object Description
Floral cutwork design with tan thread. There are two triangles of cutwork around each corner, with an oval forming in the middle that is then connected to the main tablecloth. In the center, there is a rectangle of cutwork with two ovals in the middle and two narrower ovals protruding off of each of the wider ovals. The cutwork design looks like groups of flowers with leaves.
Origin
This was made by Dionysia Papadatos for Coula's prika. Prikas consists of linens such as tablecloths, towels, rugs, or bedspreads that the bride takes with her to her new home. Traditionally, these linens would have been hand made.
