Cocktail Napkin, 100 Years of American Design Collection
This is a Cocktail napkin.
American folk art was particularly popular during the 1930s, and Mergentime was a collector and incorporated various motifs from patchwork quilts, painted chests, stenciled borders, and calligraphic lines into her textiles. This collection was designed exclusively for Lord & Taylor.
This object was previously on display as a part of the exhibition Tablescapes: Designs for Dining.
