For the Desert Rose purist in your life, this is a very hard to find Set of 8 Placemats and 8 Napkins. These appear to be made of linen, and hand painted with the infamous Franciscan Desert Rose design. These are most likely from the late 1940s or very early 1950s.

They are immaculate, absolutely no stains or pulls, the flowers and leaves are vivid and true. The fabric is Ecru in color. They seem to be lightly starched, still in the original box and tissue paper as when found. They do not appear to have ever been used. Storage folds or light creases, and I detect a faint mustiness. This set was stored for decades.

Each placemat measures 18 inches by 14 inches (including the fringed borders) and the napkins measures 11 1/2 inches by 11 1/2 inches (including the fringed borders). The fringe is in perfect condition. Again, this set is like new, with the exception of the faint mustiness. In my research, I was not able to find a set like this.

This listing is for 8 placemats and 8 napkins, or a total of 16 pieces.

How are Shipping costs determined?
My shop is located in Indiana. The USPS bases the shipping fee on the distance being shipped (based on postal zones) and the weight and dimensions of the package. The majority of my items utilize calculated shipping, meaning, the cost is based upon the above.

Any overages paid on shipping will be promptly refunded when shipped, we do not make a profit on shipping fees.

What if your purchase is a gift?
If you are purchasing a treasure for a gift and would like to have it shipped directly to the recipient, no worries about receipts or invoices. I never put a paper copy in with my packaging. You will have a copy on your computer. Your gift recipient (if you choose to have it shipped directly to them) will not see any of the paperwork.

For International Shipping - I ship internationally and strive for the most economical method of delivery. Please convo me with your Ship To address and I will give you the shipping charge amount prior to your purchase. Seller is not responsible for any VAT or Customs charges that may be imposed.


We accept returns for any reason within 14 days of receipt. If you simply change your mind, return your purchase in the same condition received and in the original packaging and your purchase price of the item will be refunded promptly when I receive the item back. The shipping expenses incurred are the buyer's responsibility.

If you feel the item pictures or description grossly misrepresents the item, seller will assume responsibility for all shipping, including return shipping. I provide detailed pictures and a thorough description, purchase with confidence.


Just a mention that items from my shop are vintage items, not new items. All have been previously owned and as with most vintage items, they are gently used and may show signs of use and wear. I try my best to give an accurate description. I will note in the item description any sign of wear that would affect the functionality or overall appeal of the item.
