Sparta and Athens - Irish Figural Linen Damask
This is a remarkable figural set - a banquet sized double damask linen tablecloth with 24 banquet napkins in a soft beige with white damascene. The design is an intricate, structured illustration of the classical world at war with warriors, chariots, horses and a lovely maiden offering water to the combatants. All 25 pieces to the set are monogrammed. The set has been used but carefully with no damage or weak spots. The quality is the finest - dense weave and distinct, exact woven patterns. The millmark is of a rampant lion. Cloth: 70" x 162" Napkins: 26" x 26.5
The first image is of the center medallion of the napkin and is the best representation of the color. The other images show designs featured on the cloth - all truly remarkable.
