             Antique Linen Damask Napkins

             Monogrammed "SA"

Item Number N45406

Imagine my absolute deeeelight when I got home, pulled out my dusty market stash from my backpack to discover this declaration of authenticity woven into the selvedges of these unused, fabulously monogrammed antique napkins.  Breathless and flushed? Actually, I passed out and don't remember much after that...

My only chagrin...and it's a BIG chagrin, is that they were apparently hastily and poorly machine hemmed along their journey to my loving linen hands.  I agonized over how to share this with all of you...Why on earth would someone do such a thing to something so marvelous it makes my linen heart skip beats??  Why, tell me please???  It was like finding a precious, formerly undiscovered Monet painting in a shabby 1960's frame.  Yep.  That's what it was like.  Now remember, I am a perfectionist, so what you see above is really a good example of the rest.  If you can live with that, this set is a fabulous find for you too....

Amazing hand woven antique Irish linen damask (says so right on the hem!) napkins in a sought after large set and equally desirable larger size are fabulously hand monogrammed "SA" on one corner of each.  The early Arts and Crafts linen damask pattern looks rather like a blooming onion, a common design theme for that era, in a repeating pattern that surrounds the striped center field.  The only "flaw" is the hasty machine hemming job that nearly caused me to cry.  But other than that, these were never used, are nearly perfect and have been freshly laundered and pressed once by me.  The best... c.1880 - 1920  26.5" X 27.5"
