SET OF 8 VINTAGE LINEN PLACEMATS

WITH

ELABORATE EMBROIDERY & CUTWORK

Description : This set of 8 vintage placemats are made of a cream colored linen. They feature an elaborate floral and scroll design hand-embroidered in a taupe colored thread. T is cutwork throughout, laced with bridges. The pattern is all outlined in the same hand stitching (see close up pictures). The edges are scalloped from the floral design edges, trimmed in the same taupe thread. The center medallion is framed in a delicate double drawnwork rectangle, stitched as if to appear under the floral design. It adds a lovely detail. These are very well executed, and could possibly be Madiera - no label was present, however.

Measurements: They are 12” x 17”.

Condition : These are in excellent condition. T are no holes, tears, repairs or stains. They have been washed and ironed and are ready to use on your table.
