Indonesian Furniture

Going to buy this furniture in the 1870s, not all embroidery … in a hope chest. A lot of it rested on dressing tables, on the backs of sofas… tidies and antimacassars could be worked on Java canvas, with geometric designs embroidered in wool. They were meant to protect furniture from things that might damage them: the hard edges of metal and glass lamp bases against tabletops, hair oil, and abrasion against upholstery.
