This was made in the 1920s by an aunt I never knew. She died when my mom was an infant. She apparently did a lot of crafts. I have to gather my courage to try and repair this. My eldest aunt gave it to me when we visited her last year. She also crochets and knits and taught my mom a lot of the crafts she does. My aunt also gave me a granny square doily made by my grandmom which I've given to my uncle.
