Vintage D. Porthault Linen Flax French Floral Print Tablecloth For Sale
An exquisite grand cloth from the grandest name in fine linens anywhere is this gorgeous vintage D. Porthault 100% flax (linen) tablecloth. With its very coveted floral pattern and charming trademark hand-stitched scalloped edges, this cloth is simply a must for advanced collectors or those who entertain using only the finest quality linens.
The pattern on this cloth is pure Porthault - impressionistic dapples of bright, cheery colors making up a delightful floral pattern. Fresh tangerine orange, lemon yellow, cantaloupe melon, mint green and a pale robin's egg blue form a veritable floral frenzy while tangerine-toned edges are deeply scalloped, forming a beautifully-draping cloth with simple and fresh elegance. This cloth can be matched with all sorts of table linen accessories to make a completely unique table no one will forget - and to those guests who also know "the Porthault look"... well, your table will go down as being one of the greats (if you do end up using the cloth).
The cloth is is vintage Porthault, made of 100% pure flax which is no longer used by Porthault in making their cloths.The linen is smooth, supple and cool to the touch, characteristics of fine linen, and you will love simply feeling it in your hands. Vintage Porthault flax cloths are extremely difficult to come by, and as they are no longer made, they will become increasingly scarce and thus more valuable as a result. This is an absolute investment piece for those who demand the best in entertaining and/or in a linen or textile collection.
The cloth retains its original Porthault label, thus ensuring its authenticity and collectibility.
It is a circular shape ~hard to find in general and especially with Porthault cloths.
SIZE: approx. 93-3/4" round
CONDITION: Very good pre-owned, unwashed/treated vintage condition. No stains or odor and three tiny weak spots noted, two of which are pictured. Minor wear to the scalloped edge - typical for vintage Porthault cloths - but no fraying detected. Colors remain bright, crisp and vivid. Natural slubs noted throughout as this is a pure flax cloth. Weak spots are very small, insignificant, and do do not detract from overall value and aesthetics of the cloth.
Just a magnificent cloth exhibiting every aspect a Porthault piece must possess to be considered one of the more highly collectible patterns and pieces. Do not miss out on this cloth; of this quality they come around rarely... and in the future even moreso as they are increasingly difficult to find, being snatched up and treasured in modern-day trousseaus. This is, quite simply, an investment textile with heirloom appeal ~ as D. Porthault linens have been - and continue to be ~ used by the most famous, wealthy and royal individuals and families in the world.
