Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

Sheerest Organdy

Madeira Appliqué Cocktail Napkins

Item Number N45106

Amazing sheer organdy is beautifully embroidered with Hydrangea blossoms using a shadow technique much like Vera Marghab's "Hortensia" pattern.  These are, no doubt, a direct steal from her as her patterns were not copy written in time to legally prevent it.  These were likely the work of Imperial Linens, an eager Madeira competitor that used every angle to achieve a viable market share, including hiring Vera's own embroidresses on the side! (Perfection, Never Less: The Vera Way Marghab Story, by D.J. Cline). 

....now where were we??? Oh, yes!  The crisp white organdy is the perfect backdrop for such a delicate bloom.  And they are perfect.  The very best of Madeira vintage embroidery.  Freshly laundered and pressed, in excellent condition.  c.1940's - 50's  6.25" round

From the estate of a prominent mid-century Industrialist. 

Provenance available upon request.
