This is a set of six vintage hand embroidered napkins in never-used, mint condition. They measure apx 9.25” x 8.25”. Each has a different picture carefully embroidered in the corner. The pictures are explained on the printed sheet that accompanies the napkins. It starts by saying, “The embroidered designs on your needlework tell a story of how some of the people in Puerto Rico live. Some of these people are fair with blue eyes and some are dark. They live together happily, not caring about the color of their skins. These people, like most of those “South of the Border,” speak Spanish. Guitar playing is popular with the “campesinos” or country people.”

The story goes on to tell a little about the significance of each embroidered picture. I received these as a gift in the early 60s from a lady in Puerto Rico and have kept them tucked neatly in a box until now. The original paper sticker is still attached to the first napkin.

Please take a look at my photos and convo with any questions. Thanks for looking!
