Madeira Embroidered Vintage  Linen

Cocktail Napkins

Item Number N092510

I am thoroughly intrigued...are these the work of Marghab embroideresses?  Here are the clues:  perfect execution, perfect straight edge borders (reported to be the most difficult of all to execute),  unusual pattern that embraces the perimeter (just roll with me here), and the size...I think I might be on to something!  My other suspicion is that this is one of Constance Leiter's designs.  She was employed by Vera Marghab and formed her own embroidery company utilizing many of the same workers.

Splendid, perfectly executed vintage embroidered white linen cocktail napkins are most assuredly the work of the best hands of Madeira, Portugal...and likely from a firm like Marghab Linens or Constance Leiter.  The linen is crisp, clear of flaws and the center medallion is uniquely worked with a beautiful Asian inspired design.  Superb!  Freshly laundered and pressed, in excellent condition.  c.1960's 8.25" X 5.25"
