Large Antique Lace & Finely Embroidered Linen Breakfast ~ Dessert Set

Material:  Fine Linen, Handmade Cotton Bobbin Lace

Color:  Cream

Size:  Larger Mats ~ 11 & 3/4 inches,  Smaller Mats / Coasters ~ 6 inches

Quantity:  14  (8 larger, 6 smaller)      

This divine antique fine 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 mats somewhat larger than I generally see, these elegant pieces can easily multi-purpose for brunch, luncheon and/or dinner service.

I do not believe that 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 I believe would 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 larger table mats ( placemats, plate silencers ) feature a floral motif, with other elements of the design on the cocktail / drink mats.

The handmade bobbin lace, which I believe to be Cluny, is beautifully made with a finer thread than I often find, thus the lace has a light, more delicate appearance and feel than some of the thicker, heavier Cluny.  To me, 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.
