Last week I was in the business trip - to the branch of my Museum (outside Cracow where I usually work) in the Castle of Pieskowa Skala (in English means - "castle on rock of little dog"). This Castle is very old (in Renaissance style) and it is in Ojcow National Park with Jurassic rocks - 20 miles on the north-west from City. In June was opened new exhibition of English paintings from XVIII and XIX century (mainly portraits from Wawel Collection, 20-25 pictures). Apart from, in three rooms are a few old furnitures and two square tables (actually without coverings, table-cloths).
Please help me to find (advise) some original historic patterns for square table (it is question for guys from England, but I am not quite sure). I don`t know anything about technique - knitting, by crochet, embroidered [design(s) from original objects from XVIII or XIX century]. Are there some books about this kind of historical table-cloths!?!?
thanks from your suggestions (ideas), forgive me for mistakes in English (I write it without dictionary)!!!
