This lovely and perfect tablecloth with 12 matching napkins is a paradoxical beauty: informal elegance and casual chic. What may be more important is the fact that the damask motif of this set exemplifies beautifully the Arte Nouveau movement of the times. The border around the tablecloth and napkins is quintessential Nouveau. The white damask linen cloth and napkins are bordered with a beautiful blue design. A very fine and delicate hand-embroidered "BR" monogram graces each of the 12 napkins and two corners of the tablecloth. A very versatile addition to your linen closet and luncheon and supper tables.
Circa 1898; French estate.
