Very Fine Unused Large Set 12 Vintage Linen Wine Cocktail Mats, Coasters, Slips - Embroidered Chateau, Chalet, Florals

Material:  Handmade Antique Bobbin & Needlelace, probably linen

Monogram:  r S c

Size:  5 & 7/8 inches

Quantity:  1 Set = 12

A divine rare matching set of 12 white antique cocktail rounds, mats, napkins, or coasters, c. 1900.  They appear to have never been used.


The center of each napkin is beautiful handmade needlelace in the Point de France style, probably linen, featuring picots on the connecting brides, with an extremely well done, finely executed monogram I believe to be " r S c ", or possibly " a S c ".  The initial "S' would refer to the last name, or Sir name.


The fine needlelace centers are encircled by very attractive continuous bobbin lace, commonly referred to as Point de Paris.


This lace features cloth stitched areas in a stylized floral motif, with fancy fillings highlighted by a gimp outline.  The mesh ground is a traditional hexagonal six point star, with a picot edge.

These lovely antique napkins are in exceptionally fine estate condition.  They appear to have never been used.  Careful examination revealed no stains, spots, rips, tears, breaks or any other kind of damage / wear. There is no evidence of weakness or fragility to the lace.  They are perfectly clean, white, extremely usable and ready to be enjoyed.

High quality personalized period linens such as these wonderful mats were often specially commissioned and/or part of are very fine bridal ~ wedding trousseau.


Note:  Point de Paris bobbin lace originated in Paris, France during the 18th century as a form of Flemish ~ Flanders lace from Mechlin and Antwerp, Belgium.  This fine, rare, matched set of twelve excellent condition antique roundels date to around the turn of the 20th century, c. 1900.
