Antique tablecloth

My mother gave me this linen tablecloth she bought at auction a long time ago and it resurfaced recently.
 I washed and ironed it and even though it has several holes, I remembered why it was so special.
Its embroidered date is 1858, pre-Confederation! Today I donated it to the Glengarry Pioneer Museum and wait to hear what their accession committee decides. Sure hope they want it.
 It's a lovely piece of linen, unlike any I've ever seen.

Hope they can find a place to showcase the tablecloth, I love the look and feel of linen.
