Italy

Beautiful antique and precious set of 6 placemats (American style tea tablecloths) and 6 napkins handmade in linen gauze and rosaline lace stitch.
The Rosaline is definitely one of the most beautiful and fine lace stitches.
Five placemats are in excellent condition, 1 has some stains (see photos). Same thing goes for the napkins; 3 are in good condition while 3 show several marks (see photos). Despite the signs of ageing, they are a rarity and a treasure of elegance and sophistication. The placemats measure 42.5 x 29 cm (side lace 13 cm, edge lace 6 cm). Each napkin measures 41.5 x 41.5 cm.
