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. There is a water mark near the center of the cloth. It may come out - no guarantees. 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.
