This centerpiece is a bit of a mystery to me. I called it cutwork but I'm not sure that's what it is. The center core, leaves and small wedges are held into the larger piece by strands of twisted thread. It is made of white linen. All the stitching is rope or buttonhole stitching. The edge is scalloped. One connecting chain is broken but could be easily repaired. Just needs a stitch. Otherwise this is in great condition. The piece is 11x16 inches.
