#NA111231 Set of 12 Cocktail Napkins – Madeira’s finest!


This set of 12 cocktail napkins is probably the prettiest I’ve ever run across.  Because of the style and superior quality we can be assured they are Portuguese but whether they are Madeira, Marghab or even another textile company in the area, without the tags we can’t be sure.  They have pale buttery yellow cotton, organdy centers (Swiss) which has been washed with a special technique to make it stiff.  The appliquéd edges are linen and a cross between a wedgewood and robin’s egg blue.  The hand embroidery is a rich gold.  These appear to be unused and are in as fine a condition as the day they were made.  These came from an estate and all I know about the couple is that he was a judge and she only bought the very finest of everything.  This set of napkins is living proof.

 

Hand cleaned, air dried and pressed.  Excellent condition   c. 1930 -40’s
