Monogrammed Vintage Cotton

                  French Orange Damask Napkins, "LL"

            Item Number N074010

Some of us shamelessly adore orange...let us vow in their presence to never again euphemize this vibrant color with labels like "peach" or "sunset" or the ever-so palatable, "pumpkin". These are orange.  Bright, delightful, over-the-top orange.  There. I said it.

French cotton 'utility' napkins (are you kidding me? - NO!) were intended for everyday use at breakfast or a mid-day meal.  The hand embroidered double monogram "LL" is superbly executed in contrasting white at the center of each.  One with age on the back (that doesn't show through) shown below, will launder.  Each has hand sewn turned-up hems on two sides, done this way to facilitate and simplify ironing on the back side.  This was a common practice in the making of European table linen...enormously practical for everyday things, don't you think?  Of the other two sides, one is selvedge and one is slightly be left or hemmed at your discretion.

Charming, brilliant, better in person.  You likely will never again see an identical set.  Offered as found, unused in original, excellent condition.  c.1950  24.5" X 25"


Set of 6 Vintage French orange cotton damask napkins, unused, monogram "LL"
