Large Set  Unused Antique Round Linen Double Damask Fringed Napkins ~ Irish Shamrock
Large Set  Unused Antique Round Linen Double Damask Fringed Napkins ~ Irish Shamrock
Large Set  Unused Antique Round Linen Double Damask Fringed Napkins ~ Irish Shamrock

Material:  Linen
Color:  Golden yellow and cream
Size:  8 inches round, including fringe, 5 & 1/2 inch center linen
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.  I 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 plate silencers, etc.
