Large Set Fine Madeira Pink Organdy Figural Poppy Flower Table Mats & Beverage Rondels

Material:  Organdy

Color:  Pink w/hint of peach

Size:  Larger Mats ~ apx 9 inches,  Smaller Mats ~ apx. 6 & 1/2 inches

Quantity:  12  ( 6 of each size)

An exquisite vintage table set of attractive figural flower shaped organdy mats, beautifully hand embroidered with the finest seed and satin stitches, dating from apx. 2nd - early 3rd quarter of the 20th century. The stylized floral motif is similar to a Poppy, or possibly an antique rose.

We have seen somewhat similar vintage floral mats retaining original tags from Madeira, Portugal, however they were not embroidered with the amount of detail, (note beautifully embroidered scalloped, fluted edges) nor, I believe, as finely worked as this nice set.  (note the fine embroidered petal detail, plus flower center and stamens)

Consisting of table mats, which can also be used as plate silencers, plus beverage coasters often called rounds or rondels, the set was likely originally intended for breakfast or dessert, but with the elegant, crisp organdy and fine, high quality embroidery work, I think the pieces would function well today for just about any dining or party purpose.

The set is in exceptionally nice vintage estate condition, with no holes, rips, tears or other problems.  I see no wear or signs of use to the embroidery or the organdy, so if this set was ever used it is certainly not readily apparent.

I have not laundered the mats, as they were clean and nicely pressed when acquired, but after years of storage they would likely benefit from a gentle soak.   Only one mat has a very small, pencil point size, light tannish storage related speck, which would surely remove with spot clean or soak.

Vintage figural flower shaped table settings, featuring quality material and workmanship similar to Marghab or Imperial are not found today with regularity and when available, are often snapped up quickly by the collectors.

Note:  The top Portuguese textile houses used the finest Swiss organdy, referred to by Marghab as Margandie and very high gloss, satiny embroidery floss.
