Antique Figural Damask Napkins

Monogrammed "MSR"

"Chariots"

Item Number N091310

Homeward bound, victorious..the war is won. Maidens await with garlands of  gratitude as Roman soldiers look on and chariots approach..sshhh..I hear the pounding of hooves...oh, MY!

His flowing hair says it all...triumphant, unleashed.  Birds flutter in every scene as soldiers are welcomed home. All of the elements of victory and peace are depicted on these amazing antique linen figural damask napkins.  Of the most detailed I've seen, this is surely a double damask.  By increasing the number of threads, the weaver can greatly enhance the detail and depth of the pattern. 

Laurel bends in the breeze and hind quarters flex to the snap of the whip...did I mention the pectorals (ok. now I'm off track!)...oh, be still my heart!!  Creamy white linen is medium to heavy weight and finished with tiny hand sewn hems.  For the collector and lover of figural damask...The best... One stray mark is shown below, and a wee spot of wear can be ignored.  Freshly laundered and pressed, in excellent condition.  c.1900 - 1920  29" square
