Table Love Pre-Love.
Set of 6 1960s straw placemat, handmade in the Philippines.
This set of SIX woven raffia placemats and 6 matching Coasters, each feature an authentic looking Hawaiian Hula dancer. She is wearing a yellow woven 'lei' around her neck and one ankle. Her woven grass skirt has a 3-D effect and she holds an uli’uli in one hand as she dances to Hawaiian music. You can almost hear the lyrics as her skirt sways to the music!!
In addition to the placemats, there are SIX dark green woven coasters (attached to the top placemat). The original sticker is still attached - 'Hand Made in the Philippines'
Measurements: 30 x 45cm - 18" by 12"
Content: Woven Raffia
Condition: Very very good vintage UNUSED condition. The placemats have never been used however, one placemat does have a few small spots possibly from the way they were stored over the years (see last picture).
These are something very special. And a collectible item if you collect table ware. I have never seen these before anywhere and in such mint condition. The raffia is completely intact with no fray.
The pretty woman dancing reminds me of someone I have seen in a Paul Gauguin painting somewhere… its vey pretty, delicate and artistic.
