This divine antique fine fourteen piece linen set, featuring cutwork and beautiful floral silk embroidery with lovely wide handmade Cluny lace borders, dates to the late Victorian or Edwardian era, c. 1900 - 1920's.


It was likely intended as a breakfast or dessert set, however with placemats somewhat larger than we generally see, these elegant pieces can easily multi-purpose for brunch, luncheon and/or dinner service.


We do not believe this set has ever been used or laundered, as the linen still retains what appears to be the original polish.  Also, other than a few tiny storage related specks on two of the large mats, which would likely disappear with a gentle soak, we see no stains, marks, rips, tears, snags or any other evidence of use.


The embroidered work is extremely well done, looking very much the same on front and back.  The eight larger table mats ( placemats, plate silencers ) feature a floral motif, with pretty cutwork accents.  The embroidery work on the six cocktail / drink mats / coasters is less ornate, but coordinates nicely with the larger placemats.


The handmade bobbin lace, which we believe to be Cluny, is beautifully made with a finer thread than often found, thus the lace has a light, more delicate appearance and feel than some of the thicker, heavier Cluny, which In our opinion appears aesthetically more in the French style.


The creamy white linen is very high quality; light, with a fine, smooth texture.


A beautiful, elegant, exceptionally nice condition antique lace and linen table set.
