Egyptian Revival Vintage Swiss Appenzell Linen Placemat Set for 8
Rare vintage Egyptian motif placemat set, circa 1930. Swiss Appenzell hand embroidery on linen. Elaborate and lovely.
Very good condition, gently used, not quite perfect. Hand laundered, bright and clean. We note a slight antique patina to the linen, some faint fold lines and smudges on the napkins. Most of the napkins have tiny pinholes, as one often sees with early Appenzell linens.
All easily forgiven – this sets presents beautifully.
