Poem "I Heard a Bird Sing" Vintage Hand Embroidery Cocktail Napkins - Set of 8

Rare and poetic.

Vintage hand embroidered cocktail napkins based on the winter poem "I Heard a Bird Sing" (by 19th century writer Oliver Herford). Exquisite detail on organdy. Italian or French in origin. These are absolutely lovely.

Excellent condition, very gently used. Hand laundered, bright and clean. A tiny fray at the edge of one. Minor, these look amazing.

Set of 8,

5 x 8 inches.

I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.

"We are nearer to Spring 
Than we were in September,” 
I heard a bird sing 
In the dark of December.
