French Liqueur Bottle

13-3/4" high, 4-1/2" base diameter.  Rare Art Deco decanter (see Pierre Deux's book, "Brittany", pp.174-175, for a collection of this genre); the paint is flaking away, but the glass itself is solid and perfect throughout.

Quimper Geometric Plate

8" diameter, perfect sandwich or salad plate size and very hard to find.

Red-and-White Table Linens

Vintage linen damask, superbly laundered!
Cloth, 60" x 80", magnificent when opened out. In perfect condition.
6 napkins, 13" square. 3 show minor problems: looks like a marking pen got out of hand (so to speak); just fold discreetly, and use the hostess's mantra: never complain, never explain.

$75 the set, plus shipping.

Colorful Linen Lot

RED TRIO
12" square, ragged along the edges, too pretty to throw out; save to line cookie baskets at Christmas.
GREEN-and-WHITE QUARTET
17" square, cross-woven cotton damask. In perfect condition.
CROSS-STITCH TABLE MAT
13" x 17-1/2". A lively design, carefully executed. One corner shows a smoker's carelessness; fortunately, it would be a very simple repair.
