GORGEOUS VINTAGE New In Box MARGHAB MADEIRA EMBROIDERY PLACEMAT NAPKIN SET/8 EA
Featured is an absolutely stunning vintage presentation box of Marghab Madeira Embroidery Placemats and Napkins.
Entirely made by hand in Madeira.
This is the Vineyard pattern, in the color Champagne.
There are Eight of each, for a total of SIXTEEN PIECES all together.
The design is a lavish border of embroidered grape clusters, vines, and leaves.
The eight placemats are a sheer cotton margandie - so beautiful.
The eight napkins are a fine linen, with sheer cotton margandie at one corner with the grape embroidery.
The colors are a pale taupe, or oyster, with shades of gold embroidery.
The leaves of the grapes are appliqued and embroidered.
All of the scalloped edges are embroidered with a very fine buttonhole stitch.
There is also a plastic storage sleeve that keeps the set pristine.
Original box and tissue are all included and in good shape. There is a foil label from Halls, a very exclusive store here in Kansas City on the Country Club Plaza.
This set is vintage, but new and never used. It has been carefully stored in all of its wrappings/ribbons. Absolutely pristine. A rare estate find, and breathtakingly beautiful in its detail and workmanship.
One napkin alone in this pattern took 75,000 stitches, and at least a month to complete by the most skilled embroideresses.
This pattern is one of the most sought-after by collecters of fine Madeira embroidery and Marghab linens. And, this set is in mint condition.
Placemats measure 12" by 18"
Napkins are just over 16" square.
