Banquet size (120" x 50") tablecloth, early 20th century vintage. This is a little more 'country' style than much of the damask we find, metis or pure linen, probably French.
We love the checkerboard weave and the natural ivory color, the slightly rough texture... everything about this cloth is perfectly rustic yet elegant! It would be beautiful for a wedding.
There's some foxing and light discoloration to the edges and the fold lines. I don't believe this was ever used or laundered, so we've left it just as we found it. There's no wear to the fabric, no signs of spots beyond the aforementioned foxing, fabric is crisp.
