Material:  Linen
Color:  Golden yellow and cream
Size:  8 inches round, including fringe
         5 & 1/2 inch center linen, not including fringe
Quantity:  9

A very nice matching set of nine antique double damask linen cocktail rounds, mats, napkins, coasters, or table / plate silencers dating to the later Victorian or Edwardian eras, c. 1890 - 1910.

The fine linen damask napkins feature a pattern incorporating two very traditional Irish symbols; the shamrock clover and the eight point star, which is often associated with Saint Patrick, surrounded with hand done yellow and cream fringe.

The linen rounds are a rich golden yellow and cream color double damask, so the pattern in opposing color shows on each side; one side displays the traditional Irish white shamrock and star, on a golden yellow ground and the other side displays the golden yellow shamrocks and stars, on a cream ground, as can be seen in the second image.

The napkins are in exceptionally fine antique estate condition.  They appear to have never been used and were well stored.  We find no stains, spots, rips, or tears, etc.   The napkins are nicely ironed, however the fringe could use a press or steam to straighten, but it is not tangled, so just a minor, aesthetic matter.  One of the napkins has been hand sewn around the  linen edge, with a fine whip stitch, however the others have not.  Unless you have vision like a bird of prey this is not really noticeable, but discovered upon close inspection, so information provided.

Really nice antique double damask rounds, featuring a popular motif, in a versatile size that could multi purpose as napkins, coasters, cocktail roundels or even smaller plate silencers, etc.
