Antique French Linen Tablecloth and Napkins set
Item Number M13507
Heavy antique French linen damask tablecloth and matching napkins are each crisply monogrammed "CJ" with embedded flowers in grand French Rembourré style. Linen damask is creamy white in color with a detailed and likely hand woven floral inner border that is repeated and embellished near the edge. The damask pattern turns the corner on the tablecloth and napkins to form a portrait or frame for the monogram. The double monogram is repeated on the tablecloth and is slightly smaller on the napkins.
The hems are "turned up" and finished by machine in a European style that is quite common and forms a sturdy and decorative border on two sides....sooo French! I believe this was done to simplify the ironing process as these fabulous monograms are best ironed on the back...Superior hand embroidery and design, imported from France and offered freshly laundered and pressed, in excellent condition. c.1890's - 1920
