I've ben browsing through channels and popped into a show on BBC, that had a real irish crochet lace masterpiece
Unfortunatly you can only watch it in UK on the BBC site http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/bigscreen/tv/episode/p00zjmzf/, but I has som screenshots, that are just stunning. The most amaising thing about this table cloth is that consists of 40 elements and do not repeat!!!! 5 rows, 8 columns make a piece of cloth of 104х64 centimeters. All the floral elements are fittet into octagons and joined with celtic knots
The owners suspect that this masterpiece was made by nuns and then presented to Queen Mother. Later she sent it to charity needs where the original cloth was decreased and some elements have been removed. The leftover had then worked with trimming that contain classic flat motifs and filling that required less experience.
And as I mentioned earlir, there is no even one repeating element in the main part of the cloth. Each octagon is a mini panno measured 12 cm, and it containg 1 flower and three leaves. The reality of these elements is amasing. I.e on this area you can see a wheat and a carnation flowers
Oak branch looks like real and done with an exact precise
Lily of the valley. Think about the thread size, if the photo is almost the real size and each flower has at least 25-30 double crochet stitches in a row.
Hyacinth. This precisness in details is specific for Madame Harouine patterns and some can actually be found in it
Grape and daisies
