Kawaii Hungarian Embroidery - Japanese Pattern Book for Hungary Stitch - Traditional Floral Design - B1183. $28.50, via Etsy.
This cloth comes from Hungary and was made by a family member, probably in the late 19th century. It looks pretty well preserved at first glance. The characteristic red thread has faded a bit but whoever stitched it had a confident hand and the embroidery is beautiful.
