1917 World War I "Remember Me" Doily

1917 World War I "Remember Me" Doily, Choice Near Mint.

Not listed or illustrated in "Threads of History"! 20" in diameter, made of a colorful orange silk surrounded by an ornate, woven edging. The central vignettes feature a soldier on one side, his sweetheart on the other. Some of the designs appear to have been hand-colored. Between them is a flag, a panel with the words "Remember Me", and a scroll with the words "Sweet be to thee life's passing hours, And all thy path be decked with flowers." A star-spangled border surrounds. This was most likely given by a serviceman to his honey as a memorial piece while he was away at war. Most likely very rare, as we've never seen another.
