11  NAPKINS BRIGHT WHITE WITH MATCHING TABLECLOTH

 TRADITIONS OF THE FRENCH TROUSSEAU


In the humblest farmhouse to the grandest chateau, most household linens were marked with hand embroidered monograms

 from a simple kitchen cloths to the most beautiful linen sheets and table linens,
 
care was taken to "MARK THE TROUSSEAU" with the couples initials
 
The trousseau wether humble or extravagant was brought by the bride and remained her property.

This tradition carried on until the early 20th century.


NO WHERE ELSE IN EUROPE DO YOU FIND THIS TRADITION OF MONOGRAMMED LINEN TO THIS EXTENT.

THE NAPKINS AND TABLECLOTHS I FIND BELONG TO THIS TRADITION, MOST DATE FROM LATE 19th TO EARLY 20th century.


EVENTUALLY THERE WILL BE NO MORE, THEY ARE ALREADY BECOMING HARDER TO FIND.

XXXXXXXXXXX 

IT IS RARE TO FIND THESE ANTIQUE TABLE SETS WITHOUT STAINS ,HENCE WHY WE TINT SO MANY

THIS SET IS SO WONDERFUL IN FANTASTIC CONDITION AND BRIGHT WHITE.


XXXXXXXXXXX


THE VERY ELEGANT PATTERN IS ENHANCED BY BANDS OF STYLISED FLOWERS VERY ART DECO.

THE MONOGRAM IS WONDERFUL HAND EMBROIDERY IS MY PASSION AND THIS IS FIRST CLASS WORK

THE LETTERS   "FB" OR "LB" ARE ENTWINED AND WORKED IN RAISED SATIN STITCH WITH SOME BASKET WORK HIGHLIGHTS

THE CLOTH HAS TWO MONOGRAMS AT THE CENTRE FACING OUTWARDS FOR YOUR GUESTS TO SEE.

THEY ARE ALL IN WONDERFUL CONDITION. 

AS WITH ALL ANTIQUE LINENS THERE IS A SLIGHT FAULT, THE FAINTEST BLUE MARK RIGHT AT THE EDGE OF THE CLOTH SEE PIC 9

THAT IS ALL I CAN FIND WRONG 

 I HATE TO USE THE TERM ALMOST  PERFECT WITH ANTIQUES BUT THESE ARE AS NEAR AS.

THERE ARE 11 NAPKINS 

A VERY GENEROUS 29INS  X 34INS

MONO 2.5 X 3INS

TABLECLOTH 70 X 90 INS

MONO 5X5.5INS

THEY WILL SHIP REGISTERED AND INSURED  AT A SUBSIDIZED COST TO YOU


WE HAVE PRODUCED MANY DIFFERENT COLOURS OF NAPKINS
