Vintage Vera Neumann Napkins

These are some of the Vera Neumann napkin sets that I have collected over the last few years.   Vera patterns are well known by collectors.  She designed patterns for scarves, clothing, linens and dishes.    She started using the trademark signature Vera on her textiles in 1947.  Geometrics, dots  and bold florals were very popular and are widely collected today.    Items produced from the 1959 to the late 1960’s also had a picture of a ladybug next to her trademark name.

Although she died in 1993 the company continues today and is owned by The Vera Company of Atlanta GA.

I am always on the hunt for Vera items but they are getting harder and harder to find so it is a thrill when I actually come across one in good condition.

Please note all the above are now SOLD except for the black and white ones.

    Hello, I found some of the yellow and brown swirly napkins like you show in this post in a thrift store today and was trying to find out more about them when I ran across this post. Can you tell me anything about them? Thanks.

      I really don’t know much more about them than the fact that they were designed by Vera Neumann. I would guess they were probably from the 1960’s or 70’s. Vera was quite famous for her bold and colourful designs. Most Vera napkins are quite collectible now and hard to find in good condition. A set of 6 napkins in this pattern would probably retail for about $20 to $25.
