Table linens

Odds & ends

This is the second instalment of a larger work inspired by textiles I inherited. My mother had an impressive collection of Damask and other table linens: each tablecloth was accompanied by a small notecard with size details, the kind of table it could best be used for, where it originally came from and when. While some of the pieces were never used, stains from meals eaten long ago are clearly visible on many of the other tablecloths.
