Sailboats Nautical Theme Vintage Linen Placemat Set - Setting for 8

Fabulous vintage placemat set with a nautical theme. View through a life preserver shows sailboats and buoys, with seagulls overhead. Hand embroidered in Madeira. Striking and gorgeous!

The placemats and napkins have two different designs, with the runner incorporating both. The set is fine linen, with the interior of the life preservers organdy and linen appliqué. 

Good condition, not quite perfect. Hand laundered, bright and clean. The red color is a little faded, there are some faint whitish streaks to the linen, and a few faint marks. The table runner has deeper issues — it shows more fading than the rest of the set, and there are holes in the organdy windows (see last photos).

If you can forgive the runner, this is a wonderful set — bright, unusual, and so very charming!

8 placemats, 12 x 18 inches;
8  napkins, 14 x 14 inches;

1 table runner, 14 x 44.
