Offering an UNUSED and very collectible early Marghab hand embroidered Bib made in Madeira, Portugal featuring a whimsical rendition of the '3 Little Pigs'. Made of Irish linen with cotton appliqués and french floss embroidery. The original early paper tag and Gremio seal still attached! Simply charming as a gift or for a textile collection.
The Marghab name is to embroidered linens what the Tiffany name is to art glass. If you love fine linens, you will certainly wish to add Marghab pieces to your collection. Marghab primarily made table linens including napkin sets, placemats and tablecloths.
The Marghab company insisted on the best materials. They used fine Irish linen. While the transparent charm of organdy was desireable, the stiffness and puckering that developed aftering laundering organdy was unacceptable. Soft Egyptian cotton was woven in Switzerland to make Margandie® a Marghab trademarked fabric which retained the elegant sheerness of traditional organdy without its drawbacks. Special high-gloss embroidery flosses were dyed in England and France for use on Marghab products.
The bib measures approx. 8.5" x 12.5". Excellent unused condition. Some minor age spots on cotton appliqué
