Ah, luncheon followed by an afternoon of bridge. . . a favorite pass time of ladies in the first half of the 20th century. For luncheon, the card table was set with a charming cloth sized to fit the top of the table - minimal to no overhang. So, these sets tend to be square and small. Luncheon napkins are small - just a little larger than a cocktail napkin. Today, the afternoon of food, tea and bridge rarely happens. However, these linens work beautifully as centerpiece toppers set diagonally on the dining or kitchen table. The graphic designs of the period were very sophisticated - even the more sentimental - enjoy.
