Vintage Yellow Linen Cocktail Napkins with Lace Corner Detail - Set of 4 - Marigold Mustard Squash Colors
...Autumn — that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness — that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling. Jane Austen
You might as well call these vintage napkins the color of a thousand Autumns. Not quite yellow not quite orange, these vintage wonders are all at once reminiscent of homemade butterscotch, marigold flowers, a smear of mustard, a hint of squash, a golden leaf, even a dash of pale pumpkin. In other words they are that indescribable shade that surrounds us from all angles in the fall - tree-top high, ground cover low and everything in between.
Accented at the bottom corner with white lace and embroidery thread, these are the type of cocktail napkins you want to offer with a glass of whiskey or a robust red wine. Something strong and smokey to offset their dainty appearance. Or jump right into the beauty of the season and pair them with pumpkin punch or your favorite spiced gin. The napkins aren't picky - they go with everything this time of year!
Although unmarked and untagged, these napkins with their ultra crisp linen fabric material and brand-new appearance date most likely to the 1970's when such a shade was a complimentary match alongside avocado green and burnt orange.
- Brand new vintage condition
- Lace trim at corner with stylish embroidery details
- Matching set of 4
In absolutely gorgeous condition. We suspect that these remained in the cocktail cabinet, never mingling among the crowd, which has left them in pristine condition. No spots, stains, tears, rips or pulled threads.
Each napkin measures 10.5" inches x 10.5" inches.
For an interesting and unique ensemble, pair this set of napkins with this other set of vintage napkins - their colors coordinate perfectly!
