As time goes by

Another vintage crochet piece from my friend’s granny, and what a find this one is:
How to describe it? It is about 40cm in diameter and made with very fine cotton (a single chain is about 1mm wide). The whole piece is threaded through with an olive green silk ribbon, and the points are finished with eight green tassles. I say ‘piece’ because I am not at all sure what it’s purpose is – a doily? a bowl cover? a dressing table centre piece?
Whatever it was intended for it is a lovely piece of work, and a fine example of what must now be an almost forgotten craft.
