           Antique French Linen Monogrammed Napkins

           Hand Woven Figural Damask, Triple Monogram

            Item Number N52706

Enormous and silky antique French linen damask napkins are monogrammed in the center of each, "CNA".  Some call them "lapkins" as they were made large enough to cover the substantial skirts of the 19th century, these would definitely qualify as such -- they are a yard wide by 2.5 feet!  If you love the thought that these were once used at a formal French table seated with grandly attired Victorian guests, these will provide you with ample food for your imagination to be sure. 

The gorgeous monogram is layered in the formal French presentation and appears in the center of each piece.  Hand woven figural linen damask is creamy white and silky to touch.  Two different damask patterns are exactly the same size and themed similarly with dragon flies, butterflies and even bees buzzing among the flowers.  One pattern also has birds (humming birds?) ...these were definitely from the same maker.  The monogram is identical on each piece and they came to me as a set.  One has an ancient darn about 1/8th of an inch which could not be found to be photographed.  It can only be seen when the piece is held to the light.  Extraordinary in every way...these are in nearly unused condition and are clean and pressed.  c.1860's - 70's   30" X 36"
