Description This wool tablecloth was probably used on a center table rather than a dining table. It is a square shaped cloth with a medium brown solid colored center. There is a three and one-half inch red border on all sides. In the corners the squares of wool are a darker red color. There is a dark brown fringe on the edges. Two sides are missing most of its fringe. The existing fringe measures approximately three and one-half inches. On the border there are two rows of cream colored wool done in a heavy decorative design.
