This is the 4th and last of the servant quarter's at the chateau near Brantôme -Dordogne.
This linen was only allowed to deck the staff quarters on Sunday lunch after it would be folded back into the cupboards and be replaced with the plastic table covering which is still very popular in France "profond" and particularly on farms as it is so very practical to clean.
There are two sets of simple initials M.D. one on the top and at the bottom of the linen. It is very white linen. The damask design is rather dramatic with sways intertwined with flora.
The centre island has sways of garlands interlinked with ribbons.
The edges on top have again wide ribbons with what looks like 3 bells in the centre. The borders again have sways of ribbons. It is a very unusual, but beautiful design.
