This is defintely a first for Mint – silverplated place mats – so decadent! And so pretty! The silver plating is a bit tarnished on two of the placemats, with what looks like copper showing through on the one. There are also plenty of fine scratches to the silver, and the green felt backing is in a right sorry state! But they’re still a very special set, and sell for a pretty decent price online (around R1000). Also the wear’s not going to be noticeable once you have your dinner plates resting on them, and even without plates to cover them up (it almost seems a shame to hide them with plates), they’re still very attractive!
Note: The set comes with six placemats, and two smaller mats that could be used as trivets.
Dimensions: Larger placemats -21.5cm in diameter; Smaller placemats – 16.5cm in diameter
