This vintage, embroidered runner is a small, oval runner of colourful flowers.It's a colourful runner, a vintage Greek runner, a fine specimen of Greek, folk and traditional embroidery, made in the late forties.
At the time women in Greece still spent most of their free time in the evenings embroidering their dowries and their daughters' dowries.They chose almost predominantly, Greek folk designs, but modern, European designs were also very desirable.
Embroidering flowers is still a great favourite with crafters and hobbyists.

This here, vintage runner features a Greek, folk art embroidery design of many small colourful flowers in bouquets.The flowers are small daisies and small carnations.The colours are pink, magenta, purple and blue.There are two bouquets of two daisies opposite each other on the narrow part of the oval runner and another two bouquets of four flowers each at the oval edges of the runner.The flowers beauty is accentuated with bright, emerald green leaves and small branches.
Between those there are long branches of yellow, curvy rice like plants.Double, bent, beautiful branches of cereal plants in yellow, two of those between each bouquet.

This vintage, embroidered runner is oval in shape, hand crocheted near the rim with white, cotton thread.The runner's fabric is linen.There is a slightly shabby knot of the lace on one of the sides, near the centre.

All of the runner is embroidered with cotton threads.A lot of these threads were handmade and dyed at home at the time.
Other threads were purchased from local shops or wandering salespeople in cars, carts, wagons, etc.
This very cute, rustic runner was made for all surfaces at home, to decorate and protect hte furniture.It was done in a very rustic manner of embroidery, typical of folk art work.
