I’m not normally that attracted to oriental patterns (despite how lovely they are!), but something about this set of vintage English placemats spoke to me! I like the fact that the set’s complete – it even has a trivet of sorts and two larger placemats for serving dishes. The placemats that are intended for dinner plates are rather small, but I suppose they just really need to touch the base of your plates, and unless you have ridiculously large plates they should work just fine! There’s some wear here and there, but overall the placemats are in good nick of their years.

P.S. Click here to see some of the great designs produced by ‘Worcester Ware’, the company responsible for making these placemats.

Dimensions: Small placemats (six) – 19cm long x 16cm wide; Larger placemats (two) – 24cm long x 18cm wide; ‘Trivet’ (one) – 19cm long x 16cm wide

Price: R220 for the set (9 mats in total)
