Object Description
Off-white table runner with floral design. This table runner has a rectangular shape with tassles on the two ends. At either end, there are identical, embroidered floral designs. The design consists of four flowers surrounded by vine-like green scrolls. The two outer flowers have gold petals with pink dots in the central. There are three flowers toward the center of these end-designs--two of which have orange petals while the other has pink petals. Throughout the fabric, there are gold stripes, ranging in thickness.
