The big doily is a miracle of rings and flutings and interwoven designs and will make one of your handsomest "show" doilies. It's sufficiently large to use under a wedding cake tray as it is nineteen inches in diameter. It will also make an exceptionally beautiful dining table centerpiece or you can use it on a round lamp or side table.
