Antique Fleur de Lys Embroidered Napkins Monogrammed TV
Pure elegance in damask and embroidery! This lovely antique napkin service is loomed of an exquisite pure white and weighty linen damask with a slightly textured weave and a subtle sheen. Each of the twelve napkins features a central monogram, TV or CV, meticulously embroidered in an important relief of bourdon and accented with tiny embroidered flowers. The letters are framed in a damask medallion exhibiting a graceful motif of lilies and the surrounding damask features a stylized fleur de lys motif, the symbol of French nobility. A large frieze of lilies frames each piece and a smaller damask band with yet another fleur de lys motif completes the border. All of the hems are hand-stitched with miniscule points. This stunning service likely dates from the late 19th century and is in impeccable, as-new condition! Dimensions: 31" x 25"
