Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

Antique French Monogrammed Table Linen

Item Number M05304

It was difficult to convey with photography the richness of this heavy linen monogrammed set.  Antique French linen is known to be weighty and reputedly "lasts forever" if it's cared for properly.  This set is in "like new" condition with the only indication of age being an old darn on one of the napkins.  The monogram is playful, perky and purrfeeeccccct, "MS", and is centered on each piece.  The tablecloth is square and was likely intended to be displayed on a serving table or angled, as shown below.  There is a drawn pattern around the perimeter that is framed with laurel wreaths, a common late Victorian symbol. The napkins are large and sized for a time when ladies couture still required an enormous napkin to cover acres of skirt fabric.  These elongated, huge napkins are sometimes called "lapkins".  Freshly laundered and pressed, in excellent condition.  c.1890 - 1910.  Tablecloth -- 72" X 72"  12 napkins -- 24" X 28"
