I looked everywhere on the net and there are lots of castle tablecloths, most in lace or white linen but some heavy and in velvets. There\'s no mention or pics of bead/pearl embroidered tablecloths anywhere so they must have been designed for a particular chateau somewhere in France.
I had an interesting tour. You can go stay in the most beautiful castles but would they be haunted?

agree  Bono: The beading is added to the tablecloth after they've been turned into coats. This said I do own a few beaded ones from castle heirlooms, they are just not the ones you really eat on, more the ones you have tea on. Please a ghost in my next castle visit!
