Antique and so Exquisite Banquet Sized Tablecloth and 12 Matching Napkins. The set was used the once in 1860 for a family wedding and then it was stored away. I inherited the set in the early 1970s.It's been laundered every 15 years or so then stored. It hasn't any starch or glazing to the fabric. Wonderful padded and raised silk Embroidered areas adorn the whole of the cloth, and are as they were when it was originally made by my Italian relatives.
The cloth is approximately 14 foot long and has a width of about 70 inches. The lace is unique, I have never seen a style/design like it and it was possibly made just for the wedding. There are 12 napkins which are18 inches by 16inches. It's been given a hand laundering using soap flakes and given a very gentle steaming, no pressure has been applied to the fabric nor the Embroidery or lace.
