Vintage Cross Stitch Embroidery Dinner Napkins - Set of Four - 15" Floral Corner Edge
The table settings and food service can be so well chosen and smoothly executed that the personality and graciousness of the hostess will be clearly reflected to all present. Culinary Arts Institute, 1948
Cross-stitch embroidery is always one of those sewing styles that looks simple but actually requires much skill - mostly in the balanced composition arena. All the diagonals lines of each "x" must form straight lines to keep the rhythm and pattern from running astray so this takes focus and concentration. You don't want any stitches running of course and upsetting the flow!
This set of vintage embroidered napkins is a lovely example of said concentration. Containing a corner design with a floral bouquet and complimentary scalloped design, this seamstress was very talented in the execution of her x's. Sewn onto bone colored cotton with an ecru edge, these dinner sized linens will match a lot of dishes thanks to their bright colors and classic style. An effortless choice for the year-round table to match a seemingly effortless sewing skill.
- Colors include spring green, avocado green, pale pink, raspberry, aqua, bone and ecru
- Pretty floral design that it is suitable for year-round entertaining
- Matching set of 4
In beautiful condition. No pulled threads, spots or stains.
Each napkin measures 15" inches x 15"inches
Thanks to the corner design, these napkins can be displayed a number of different ways for eye catching appeal, whether you fold them in triangles, squares or rectangles. Their large size and smooth fabric also makes them ideal to use underneath dishes as an alternative to place mats.
