Antique linen and damask
We have an extensive, constantly changing collection of antique linen and damask for sale. We have antique damask for museums and collectors and antique table linen to be used again. After all, linen is so strong that it can be washed hundreds of times before showing signs of wear. Tablecloths are available in all shapes and sizes, priced from € 50 to € 2000, from two to eight metres long. We also have wonderful 17th century napkins for sale, for example with pretty flower motifs, powerful hunting scenes or minimalist, geometric patterns. Napkins (70 x 98 cm!) are available from € 175. We also provide antique linen and damask on loan for exhibitions.
Antique linen for your Christmas dinner?
Noble and well-to-do families often gave large dinner parties and 24 guests at the table was quite normal in the 19th century. Of course, this required a beautiful, long damask tablecloth, which we can provide.
For example, we currently have a tablecloth measuring 7.60 by 2.30 metres, woven in around 1870 and with a beautiful pattern that incorporates birds, flowers and butterflies. It is a silky smooth damask with a beautiful sheen. Now reduced in price from € 1950 to € 950.
We also have a tablecloth measuring 8.10 by 2.40 metres, from around 1830. This is a beautifully woven design of roses with individual twigs of flowers made of very fine linen threads. This tablecloth is now reduced from € 1950 to € 1250.
The tablecloths are made of very fine linen – over 40 threads per centimetre is quite normal – and would have taken about two months to produce. These damask tablecloths are in a very good condition and perfect for a large, cosy family meal, for example at Christmas.
Works of art – damask by Chris Lebeau
We also have damask tablecloths and napkins designed by Chris Lebeau and woven by Van Dissel in Eindhoven. There are many different types of beautiful linen napkins, measuring 40 x 40 cm to 75 x 75 cm, or silky-smooth 19th century napkins, 125 cm long and, often, 85 cm wide. These are more like tablecloths than napkins and perfect for setting the table for two or three people.
