Various early to mid 20th century work.

Sauce Bottle covers. These items were also made in crochet work.
Sandwich tray doilies.
Set of napkin/serviette holders. Each one wrapped a napkin and was fastened by slipping one end into a slot at the other end.
Doiley celebrating a Brisbane anniversary.
Two Australiana centrepieces.

Here are two versions of the same pattern. It is interesting to see how individual embroiderers interpret designs and choose colours.
Doiley with parrots.
Beautifully stitched Blue Wren centrepiece.
Unusual sailing ship centrepiece.
Thatched cottage table runner, obviously more English than Australian, but I have no idea where this design originated. I believe it was stitched here.

Royalty design probably celebrating a royal visit or coronation.
Scotty dogs, one each end of a table runner.

Art deco style centrepiece.
