Antique White Dinner Napkins with Broderie Eyelet Cutwork Embroidery Whitework - Set of Four
In the morning there is meaning, in the evening there is feeling. Gertrude Stein
The finishing touch of your table - the dinner napkin - is often an unsung hero of the serving world. But nothing complements a lovely meal more than the feel of a soft and slippery smooth napkin beneath your fingertips. Exquisite in design and detail this set of four antique dinner napkins dates to the 1920s era and features broderie anglaise style white work consisting of flowers, circles, leaves, and dots.
A true art form, broderie anglaise needlework requires skill, attention to detail, and a trained eye for design and scale. Especially popular during the 19th and early 20th centuries, broderie anglaise can be seen on a variety of fabric items that extend beyond table linens to include clothing, bed linens and fashion accessories like scarves, handkerchiefs, and gloves.
