Material: Double Damask Linen
Color:  White

Marks:  Made In Ireland, Double Damask, Hemmed By Hand,
            No B52, Patt 1068,  Size 22x22,  Mann's Medford Oregon

Size:  22 inches x 21 & 5/8 inches

Quantity: 7

A very nice set of unused vintage, high quality fine white Irish linen double damask large dinner napkins, featuring a very attractive floral chrysanthemum motif, c. 1910 - 1920.


The set remains in the original gold foil box, with labels affixed to each napkin, indicating the set was made In Ireland of fine double damask linen and sold at Mann's Department Store in Medford, Oregon.  The napkins are very nicely hand hemmed on two sides, with a nice original selvage edge finish on other two.


This set of seven dinner napkins is in very nice vintage estate condition.  They have never been used or laundered and retain the original fine glossy finish.  We believe they have been stored in this original box since purchased.  With the exception of a single napkin that shows a light smudge and one speck we see no rips, tears, stains, darkening at folds or other problems.  A number of labels / tags remain attached to each napkin, so where a tag may have loosened or come off, there may be small amounts of residual adhesive, which will remove easily with first wash.


The box shows some wear to lid at corners and edges, along with a few smudges to gold foil paper.  Label identical to that found on napkins, indicating pattern number, size, etc, remains affixed to box exterior.

There are some marks in pencil to box back, one may be the date;  10-7-1917 and one we believe was the original price; $11.95, (also marked on the Mann's tag found on one napkin)  which would indicate that these napkins were very expensive back in the day.


A very nice, high quality set of Irish linen double damask dinner napkins, complete with labels and original box.
