Vintage and Antique Lace Christmas Tablecloths

Delicate lace Christmas tablecloths originated in Europe and were brought to the United States by immigrants and passed down from family member to family member. Vintage and antique lace Christmas tablecloths are handmade, and uniquely beautiful and delicate. They may be made of lace throughout the entire Christmas tablecloth or just around the outside edge.

Handmade lace is very time consuming to make, and usually was done by a team of women in a family or town. Expect vintage or antique lace tablecloths to be more costly than many other styles if they are in excellent condition.

Fringed Vintage Christmas Tablecloth

Fringe is always a fun addition to a tablecloth.  Children love to feel the fringe, and adults like the way fringe looks.  Vintage tablecloths with fringe that were made for Christmas are more rare than many other styles because they were only made in a few historic eras, but you can find them.  Christmas tablecloths are more likely to be fringed if they are for a side table or small decorative table, and not one that family will eat on.
