A divine hard to find set of twelve matching antique handmade needlelace table mats, dating to the turn of the century Edwardian era, c. 1900 - 1920s.

Each fancy and elaborate American Renaissance Battenburg lace placemat was hand made, by an extremely skilled needle worker demonstrating excellent workmanship, with an aesthetically pleasing design, intense needlework and a fine variety of filling stitches.

The mats are in excellent antique condition, presenting very clean, white and completely free of stains, spots, etc. They were closely examined and all appear very sound and well constructed.  The needle worker obviously paid close attention to detail, as the mats are very symmetrical in design and shape, and almost identical in size, with little variation.  Really quite amazing for a large set of twelve individually hand made table linens to be so similar.  Additionally, no significant breaks, holes, openings, etc. were found.  The mats are very elaborate, however, so possibly a very small/tiny imperfection, or minute repair may have been missed.  If so it is extremely minor, as the placemats really appear to have been used very little and were evidently cherished and well cared for.  The most significant issue noted: some sporadic, errant edge threads, which again, is quite inconsequential.   The mats were acquired in this clean, white condition, so we have not re-laundered or ironed, however some may prefer to additionally mist and press.

An exceptionally well made and rather rare large set of twelve matching American Renaissance Battenburg table mats, all extensively and densely hand worked, and obviously created by a very talented lace maker.  A really fine period antique table set that would certainly make an important contribution to a discerning lace or textile collection.
