Antique of the Week--Doily No.3

Here is the third of Pat's friend's doilies--Enjoy!!
Full doily.  Many of the motifs used around the outside are more uncommon.  The trellis motifs in the center have been modified from a square shape, so when they are combined they make an oval instead of a rectangle.

One of the flowers on the end of the oval.  Bullion "Clones" Knots in the center and fat bullion stitches on the outer part of the center.  I've not seen this motif before. I'm hoping someone can identify it in the comments!

Fern motif with huge cylindrical bullions in the center.
Thanks again to Pat for sharing these pieces with us!!!
