TRADITIONS OF THE FRENCH TROUSSEAU
In the humblest farm house to the grandest chateau, most household linens were marked with hand embroidered monograms
from a simple kitchen cloths to the most beautiful linen sheets and table linens,
care was taken to "MARK THE TROUSSEAU" with the couples initials
The trousseau wether humble or extravagant was brought by the bride and remained her property.
This tradition carried on until the early 20th century.
THE NAPKINS AND TABLECLOTHS I FIND BELONG TO THIS TRADITION, MOST DATE FROM LATE 19th TO EARLY 20th century.
THERE ARE 6 NAPKINS LINEN DAMASK IN A GLORIOUS PEACH COLOUR
VERY ELEGANT THE PATTERN DAMASK IS ROSES.
THE HAND EMBROIDERED MONOGRAM "ML" IS WORKED IN RAISED SATIN STITCH.
SIZE 30INS X 28INS
Hand tinted linen is becoming very popular here in France.
The French lady who tints these mixes her own tints.
I SOURCE THE NAPKINS AND SHE CREATES THE COLOURS.
THE COLOUR IS TRUE AND EVEN ON THEM ALL
THEY ARE ALL IN WONDERFUL CONDITION.
DELIGHT YOUR DINNER GUESTS
I TAKE PRIDE IN ALL THE LINENS I SELL AND THEY ARE WITHOUT HOLES RUST MARKS OR THINNING.
