Vintage Marghab "Hortensia"

Embroidered Banquet Tablecloth

Item Number T37108

Please forgive the wrinkles..I could not resist...had to snap these photos so this piece could be included...

Absolutely gorgeous and rare banquet size "Hortensia" tablecloth by Marghab was wrinkled from it's bath when the photos were taken but is now pristinely pressed.  "Hortensia" depicts Hydrangeas and leaves in a varied embroidered and appliqué pattern that uses layers of Margandie (Vera's signature custom woven organdy fabric) to accentuate and frame the blooms.  This design was selected to be a part of the permanent collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.*

*Perfection, Never Less: The Vera Way Marghab Story by D.J. Cline, pg. 182.

Vera Marghab's embroidered linens were the envy of linen houses around the world during her hey day from the 1930's through 1984 and are still widely sought after and collected.  This piece is exceptional for it's sheer size, but the pattern is Perfection.  Freshly laundered and pressed, in excellent condition.  c.1950's - 70's 

70" X 130"+
