vintage French napkins galore...



As you already know part of Sundays treasure included lots of lovely vintage French napkins, which I finally got around to laundering yesterday.....


The first set of 6 has an art deco style monogramme with the letters "E M".



The damask is stunning as you can see from the following photos....please click on the photo to see the detail close up.



The other set are also a set of 6 and feature a lovely "R L" monogramme.

Note for those  of you interested I also have a lovely antique silver plated soup ladle featuring the same initials  and the large knife and fork set which really are stunning and the knife and fork set are in their original box that they came in.






They really are stunning with a fabulous ribbon and flower border around the monogramme.


The damask is high quality and they are in fabulous condition as you can tell from the photos below....






A pleasure to wash and iron, they simply do not make them like this any more.







I am now heading off to update the shop and have a few other goodies which I will list at the same time.

Amities, Leeann x

  2. THESE ARE SO GORGEOUS, LEEANN. One of these days I will learn to do the hand embroidery. I use my machine now.
    Happy Wednesday.

  3. Tres jolies serviettes, LeeAnn. Now think of the stories they would tell, if only they could talk :-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  4. These certainly are beautiful napkins.
    I find it is wonderful to use proper linen for formal(and not so formal) dinners, as they give you a real sense of
    occasion.
    Am I mad to get satisfaction from ironing them too?!
    Hope you have a lovely day,
    Lizx
