Here is a vintage oval handmade table placemats set featuring elaborate cutwork, needle lace work & embroidered work. The vintage oval placemats also feature the Great Wall grid pattern around the outer edge.

The vintage embroidered table placemats are Chinese origin & the workmanship is called Chee Fu ( Ch'ih Fu). The embroidery is similar to Italian or Madeira embroidery. This precise elaborate embroidery work, has a traditional center flower motif. The side center motifs, also traditional, have embroidered images that look like fleur de Lys or Tulips. In researching the placemats, these are actually meant to represent flying bats, tokens for happiness.

Vintage Embroidered Oval Placemat Color: Taupe Embroidery on a pale ecru background. Material: heavy cotton.

Vintage Embroidered Oval Placemat Condition: I can see no marks or wear to the set.

The previous seller told me these were unused. The set was purchased in the 1970's on a trip to Japan.
