#PL031615 Set of 12 Appenzell-type Placemats, Napkins and Runner 25 Pieces Total!!!

This stunning set consists of 25 pieces -  12 placemats, 12 napkins and a large runner to travel down the center of the table.  Because the original tags are not there, I cannot call it true Appenzell, but rather “Appenzell-type” but all the elements of Appenzell are represented here.  First, a pale grey cast beneath the embroidery to enhance the design.  Second, satin stitch embroidery – some so fine you need a magnifying glass to fully appreciate it.  Third, Buratto work (woven threads in a filet pattern) surrounding the embroidery.  And finally, the small, padded, daisy-like flowers and seed stitching they are so famous for.  I sent pictures of this to several experts and we all agreed that if this set wasn’t made in Appenzell, it was undoubtedly made very close to it.  The placemats measure 18.25” x 13”.  The napkins measure 17” square.  And finally the masterful runner measures 40” x 15”.  I don’t believe any of the pieces have ever been used.  All have been cleaned and restored back to their original state and are free of any flaws whatsoever.  My thanks to the lady who I acquired it from.  She was moving and wanted nothing more than to have it restored and displayed where others could have a chance to admire such a treasure.  I feel truly honored that she entrusted me with such a rare and heavenly set.

Hand washed, air dried and pressed.  Excellent condition   c. 1900-50
