Banty Rooster Vintage Cocktail Napkins in Fine Chinese Hand Embroidery - Set of 8


– Sold Out

Fantastic vintage cocktail napkins, featuring lavishly embroidered Banty roosters in rich colors. Western-style cocktail napkins, but crafted with early 20th century Chinese talent, techniques and design - right down to use of the forbidden stitch, and the Asian breed of rooster. Rare and oh-so-beautiful.

Excellent condition, never used, original made in China labels removed for cleaning. Hand laundered, no stains or discolorations, a few thick slubs in the linen. We note one napkin with a worn spot in the linen, and another with some pulls (last photo). Easily forgiven - these are amazing.

Set of 8;
5 x 7 inches.
