This is a very handsome, well made doily/place mat. It measures 13 1/2” x 13 1/2.” The edges are white lace, while the interior is a strikingly dark, inky-blue silk. An Iron Cross is set in the center. Embroidered in rose-pink thread above it are the words “Andenken Belgien (Souvenir of Belgium).” Further below the EK are the dates 1914-1917. (The same lovely rose-colored thread accents the interior square’s outline). Bouquets of multicolored posies, set against lace backgrounds and framed by knotted silver embroidery, grace the mat’s four corners. It is a charming reminder of a bygone era.
