             Antique Figural Damask Napkins

             Monogrammed "MTL"

"Fish"

Item Number N56807

"WALPOLE BROS., LTD. FISH HAND WOVEN LINEN DAMASK, BELFAST" is neatly woven into the edge of each napkin attesting to their pedigree...as my sister-in-law would say, "Oh, Glory!"

Superior quality antique linen figural double damask napkins are splendidly monogrammed with an "MTL" in an original medallion design that is breathtaking in every way.  But really, this story is all about the damask....hand woven figural damask is so rare and would have been a costly investment when they were first commissioned.  This set was likely much larger...how I wish I had more of them!

These are hallmarked and labeled within the damask so there would be no question as to who designed and created each piece.  A pristine marsh water scene all around the border includes ducks, ferns, grasses and lily pads that encircle the center of the ponds' primary residents -- a school of fish that swim around the monogram...be still my heart!!  Each napkin has a flaw near an edge or corner, the worst of these is shown below.  These are intricately patterned, hand hemmed and heavenly white.  For the collector and lover of marsh and meadow...The best... Offered clean and pressed, as found, in good, useable condition, as shown.  c.1900 - 1920  31.5" square
