This is just one of the embroidery motifs in a tablecloth made up of 25 squares each with a different flower.
Some of the linen and lace tablecloths were worked with Mary Card crochet designs. Mary Card was an Australian crochet lace designer in the early part of the 1900's. Her designs are highly collected now.
She often used floral and bird motifs in her designs and also used animals native to Australia.
