Antique Lace Place Mats Napkin Set, Hand Made Figural Tape & Needle Lace, Three Mats Four Napkins, Estate Antique Italian Linens


A set of three beige (a latte color) place mats and four matching napkins in a combination of hand made needle lace and tape lace with figurals. The corners of the mats are of thin tape lace with a small human figure. Figure looks like a woman in a full skirt, or a man in 16th century style pantaloons. The rest of the mat is a quatrefoil needle lace with a floral design. The lace is similar to Renaissance lace. The napkins are edged with tape lace and have the same figural in one corner. The set is Italian and dates to the first few decades of the 20th century.

One of the mats and two of the napkins are lighter -- they look to have been washed with something that bled out the original color. The washed place mat is a bit smaller than the others -- indicating shrinkage.

MEASUREMENTS: two mats are 15 3/4" by 11". Smaller mat is 14 1/2" by 10". It is slightly lighter in color.

Napkins are 15 3/4" by 16". One of the lighter colored napkins retains a beige hue -- the other one is ivory. The difference in color is best seen in the first and tenth picture.

CONDITION: The place mats are in excellent condition. There is a hint of staining in the center of one -- so light that the camera did not pick it up. Napkins do have some light staining.

Because of the bleaching and shrinkage we did not launder this set.

NOTE: The yellow to orange dots seen in some of the pics are reflections from the lighting -- they are not stains.
